The Supreme Court on Wednesday made it clear that it will not grant any stay on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) without hearing the Centre and said it may refer pleas challenging the validity of the Act to a larger Constitution bench. A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde is hearing a batch of 143 pleas challenging the validity of CAA.
AG Venugopal told the bench that the government wanted time to respond to pleas which have not been served on it. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal urged the bench to put on hold operation of CAA and postpone exercise of the National Population Register (NPR) for the time being. The SC said it will not grant any stay on CAA without hearing the Centre on the matter.
