The opposition legislators also blamed the state government for its alleged failure to bring prices of essential commodities under control which they said had been spiraling out of the common man's reach.

The protesting legislators alleged that the entire administration in the state were busy trying to help the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti win by-polls from south Kashmir Anantnag assembly constituency that goes to vote on June 22.

Mufti is contesting the Anantnag assembly seat that fell vacant because of the death of her father and former Chief Minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed on January 7.
