Opposition National Conference (NC) Wednesday staged a sit-in outside the legislative assembly to protest the suspension of two of its members from the house.
Including former chief minister Omar Abdullah and senior leaders Ali Muhammad Sagar, Mubarak Gul and others, the NC legislators sat on a dharna a day after it decided to boycott rest of the assembly session.
“Two @JKNC_members have been suspended for the rest of the session. We will boycott the rest of the session,” Omar tweeted yesterday.
Altaf Kalloo and Adul Majid Larni were suspended for continuously disrupting the proceedings in the House following the Speaker’s refusal to hold a discussion on Article 35A that upholds special status of permanent residents of J&K.
