Omar-led National Conference stages walkout from J&K Assembly


Jammu, April 6: National Conference (NC) members led by Omar Abdullah on Monday, April 6 staged a walkout from Jammu and Kashmir Assembly over failure of the government to reply to a call attention motion of their member on the situation arisen due to landslides in his constituency.

NC member Mian Altaf sought reply from the Revenue minister to his call attention motion on the situation that has risen due to heavy landslides at Ramwari in his Kangan constituency.

NC stages walkout from J-K Assembly

The Ministers, who were in the Assembly in absence of Revenue Minster, were unprepared to reply and Speaker Kavinder Gupta said that it will be taken up later as Minister was attending proceedings in Legislative Council (Upper House).

The Minister for CAPD Choudhary Zulfikar Ali said that the Minister Incharge was not present in the House so the reply will be given later after he comes from the Upper House.

This angered the NC members who resorted to protest over the issue saying that the government is taking the House non-seriously. Led by Omar, NC members staged a walkout from the House in protest.

Speaking to the reporters, Mian Altaf Ahmed said "The government is non-serious in the House-- their ministers were unable to reply to my urgent call attention motion".

This has happened for the first time in the history of Assembly that government and its ministers have failed to reply to the call attention motion, he said.
