The engagement of top lawyer, Fali S Nariman, the counsel for J&K government on Article 35-A, with the petition on Cauvery water dispute in the Supreme Court is the only reason for deferment of the hearing on Article 35-A by Supreme Court.

 A government official, on conditions of anonymity, told a local news gathering agency that Cauvery water dispute is listed for hearing the same week in which petition on Article 35-A was listed for hearing but the engagement of Fali S Nariman, the counsel for J&K government on Article 35-A with Cauvery Water Dispute during the same week forced J&K government to seek deferment of the petition on Article 35-A.

 He said the Central Government also conveyed it’s no objection on deferment of hearing on Article 35-A and consequently the top court of the country agreed to defer the hearing on Article 35-A which will take place now only after Diwali celebrations in the second half of the October.
