The Supreme Court Monday declined to grant an urgent hearing to a PIL that wants the India-Pakistan Indus Water Treaty declared unconstitutional. Chief Justice of India T S Thakur observed there was no urgency to hear the matter.

“When was this treaty signed? You say in 1960. We don’t know whether you were even born or not at that time. It cannot become a matter of urgency 66 years after it was signed,” the CJI told advocate ML Sharma, who filed the petition in his personal capacity.

As Sharma sought to argue that the government could not cancel this treaty now without burdening the public exchequer with a huge penalty, Justice Thakur retorted: “Keep politics aside…we are not interested. The matter will come up in due course.”
