Chaos in J-K Assembly over Omar Abdullah's speech

New Delhi, Oct 7 (ANI): There was uproar in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly on Thursday after the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and National Panthers Party MLAs tried to storm into the well of the House over a speech delivered by Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on the prevailing law and order situation in Kashmir.

Omar Abdullah had underlined the need for a political solution to the problems in the State.

The protesting MLAs were later marshaled out of the Assembly.

It has been reported that during the melee, a Panthers Party member and three BJP leaders Jugal Kishore, Sukhnandan and Lal Chand were injured.

The BJP legislature party is also expected to boycott the remaining part of the Assembly, which will end on October 9.

Omar Abdullah had on Wednesday in an apparent reference to the saffron party's stand that there was no dispute to be resolved with regard to Jammu and Kashmir said if that would have been the case, there would have been no need for the Shimla Agreement, Lahore declaration and talks in Agra and Delhi.

"Kashmir was an outstanding issue which needs to be resolved. It is a political issue and cannot be addressed through development, employment or good governance only," he said. (ANI)
