The Supreme Court will be today hearing a PIL, which is filed against the government funding to Kashmiri separatists, alleging that they are misusing the money for the anti-India activities.
Advocate M.L. Sharma has filed the plea which further seeks to stop funding on separatists for the foreign travel and government spends other expenses as more than 100 crore on them.
Last week itself, the apex court had asked the petitioner to number his petition before the mentioning.
Justice Anil Dave said, “We also share the same feelings. Everybody sitting here feels the same.”
The SC has asked Sharma to number his petition, “To stop the government funding of Jammu and Kashmir separatists and also to come back to mention it in court at 2 pm.”
After Rajnath Singh’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, where he briefed him on the separatists’ leaders’ refusal in order to hold talks with the all-party delegation, the Central government has indicated that it would toughen its stand against the separatist leaders.
As per reports, the Centre will not only scrutinize the bank accounts of the separatists, but they will also speed up pending the investigations in the cases against them.
They have further decided to keep an eye on the activities of Kashmiri separatists, particularly Hurriyat leaders, and to curtail their foreign travel by not issuing them passports.
