Jammu, Jan 17 (UNI) The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly was adjourned today after opposition members demanded tabling of the Kundal Commission report on corruption.

Soon after proceedings in the Assembly started, opposition MLAs asked the government to table the Kundal Commission report, as assured by Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in his reply to the Governor's address.

''Despite assurances from Mr Azad, the report has not been produced in the House. This shows that the Chief Minister is not sincere,'' NC MLA Mr Ali Mohammad Sagar said.

The opposition members shouted anti-government slogans and rushed into the well of the House, demanding tabling of the report.

Replying on behalf of the government, Health Minister Mangat Ram Sharma said the report had been sent for printing and the copies would be tabled in the House soon.

The NC MLAs however, refused to buy the statement.

''The Kundal report has not been sent for printing but for changes,'' Mr Sagar alleged.

Warning the government against any alteration in the report, the NC MLAs said the opposition also had a copy of the original report.

''If there are any changes in the report, we will produce the original copy in the House'' he said.

Following uproar in the Assembly over the report, Speaker Tara Chand adjourned the House for half-an-hour.
