Modi's code violation: SC issues notice to EC on Congress' pleaNew Delhi, Jan 8 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear on Friday Centre”s plea to transfer all PILs filed in different High Courts, across the country challenging the constitutional validity of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act 2019, to the apex court.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre, mentioned the matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice S.A. Bobde stating that different High Courts may take conflicting views on the matter, especially in the backdrop of nearly 60 PILs have been filed in the apex court.
