New Delhi : The Supreme Court today declined to grant an unjent hearing on a PIL looking for declaration of the Indo-Pak Indus Water Treaty as illegal.

“There is no direness in the matter. It will come up for hearing at the appointed time,” a seat including Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justice A M Khanwilkar said.

Advocate M L Sharma, who filed the PIL in his personal capacity on the issue, sought urgent hearing of the matter saying the treaty was unconstitutional as it was not signed as per the constitutional scheme and hence should be declared “void ab initio”.

“Keep politics aside. The matter will come in due course,” the bench said when the lawyer insisted on an urgent hearing.
