“You are making fun of us,” the Supreme Court today said, pulling up the Jammu and Kashmir government for reasons put forward by it for not attending meetings convened by the centre to discuss the issue of majority Muslims getting minority benefits in the state.

“This is a disastrous affidavit. The affidavit of the Jammu and Kashmir government is making fun of us,” a bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices A K Goel and D Y Chandrachud said.

Snubbed, senior advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, appearing for the state government, said he wanted to withdraw the affidavit which was allowed.

“You (state government) are in good hands that is why you are safe. Otherwise…,” the bench said while permitting the state government to withdraw the affidavit.

The affidavit, filed through Secretary of Department of Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, said the state government was pursuing the matter with utmost seriousness and since the issues involved required deliberation between the highest authorities at the level of the Centre and the state another meeting between the authorities was imminent.
