Article 35 took away many fundamental rights of citizens.

New Delhi. During the hearing of Article 370 in the Supreme Court, Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud made a big remark. He said during the hearing that Article 35 has taken away many fundamental rights of the citizens. It has taken away the right of citizens to get employment, equality of opportunity, to acquire property in Jammu and Kashmir. These rights have been specifically taken away from non-residents. The CJI further said that equality of opportunity for all citizens in matters relating to employment or appointment to any office under the State, the right to acquire immovable property and the right to employment under the State Government. This article snatches all this away from the citizens. This is also because these were the exclusive rights of the residents and were excluded from the rights of non-residents. He said that according to the constitutional principle, the Government of India is a single entity. The Government of India is a perpetual entity.
