The National Conference, led by former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah, moved the Supreme Court Saturday challenging the President’s order on revoking provisions of Article 370 which grant Jammu and Kashmir special status.

In its petition, the party also sought direction from the apex court to declare the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, which was ratified by Parliament on Wednesday, as “unconstitutional, void and inoperative”.

The petition was filed by NC leaders Mohammad Akbar Lone and Hasnain Masoodi.
