Omar launches barbs against Mehbooba Mufti government
Jammu, January 3
After a ruckus at the start of the day’s proceedings in the Assembly , the House decided to have a discussion on the current unrest in Kashmir on Tuesday morning , suspending all the scheduled business for the day.
Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah opened the discussion , for which his party National Conference moved the adjournment motion, Congress and others . He blamed the Mehbooba Mufti led coalition government for the failure in handling the situation following the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen commander Burhan Wani in July last year .
Before the start of the discussion, the House witnessed uproarious scenes with BJP accusing opposition of disrespecting the national anthem during Governor’s address to the joint sitting of the two Houses of the state legislature in the Central hall yesterday .
The opposition retorted this. They wanted the “ killers of the youth in Kashmir to be brought to book.”
There was exchange of heated words between the opposition and the treasury benches before Speaker called House to order and accepted the adjournment motion for the discussion on the unrest.
