J&K Leg Council: NC, Cong stage walkout over civilian killings

Farooq Abdullah

"A political issue should not be hijacked and made a religious issue because we can address a political issue and can find a way out unlike the religious issue", the chief minister said in her reply to the motion of thanks on the Governor's address in the state Assembly here.

"The government was saying that the opposition has no issue but we have been demanding a discussion on the unabated civilian killings in the Valley which this government has started since it assumed charge", said Majeed Larmi. The National Conference leader said it was the state government's job to look into these matters.

"I request Pakistanis across the border and my country's Prime Minister to help the people of Jammu and Kashmir come out of this mess and protect our jawans by finding solutions, holding dialogues and becoming friends", had said Mufti, while addressing a rally in Kashmir's Anantnag district on Sunday.

Later the opposition MLAs started raising slogans including "Masoom Kashmiriyoon ka Qatl-e-aam band karo band karo", "Nagpur Sarkar hai hai", "Qatil Sarkar hai hai" and "RSS sarkar hai hai".

Members of National Conference (NC), Congress and CPI (M) expressed anger over the death of a 20-year-old man allegedly in firing by security forces following the killing of a militant in Khudwani area of Kulgam district on Tuesday.

In an apparent reference to separatist leaders in Kashmir, the former chief minister said Sharma should meet "such people, who will facilitate resolution of the big issues". However Rasheed was soon marshalled out of the House when he tried to throng the well.

"Yesterday, one youth was killed in Homshalibugh".

A total of 1,749 persons lost their lives in around 10,000 road accidents in Jammu and Kashmir in past two years, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti informed the state assembly today.

"If he is a special representative, as was mentioned by the governor in his speech, his responsibility should be different", the former chief minister said.

Some agitated opposition members rushed to the Well of the Council and anti-government sloganeering disrupted the proceedings.

Pandemonium was witnessed in the house when it met in the morning as the opposition and Independent members demanded a statement from the government on killing of the civilian. A magisterial enquiry has been ordered by the government into the incident. He led the opposition's walkout from the house.
