Opposition walks out from Kashmir assembly over BJP ‘war cry’

Opposition National Conference party on Tuesday staged walk out from the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative assembly after creating uproar over BJP calls for aerial strikes on Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

Led By Devender Singh Rana, NC’s Nagrota legislator, the Opposition asked the Speaker Kavinder Gupta to direct the government to clarify its stand.

He said the calls to bomb the other side of Kashmir have created panic in border regions of Jammu and that the people were not feeling safe after the “war cry by the alliance partner of PDP.”

While raising the issue of militant attack on a CRPF convoy in Pampore, BJP MLAs had on Monday asked the government to bomb Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

“Aaap to Boli boli kartay thay,” Rana told the PDP Lawmakers who were silently watching from their seats. “What will work: dialogue or bullet? Your partner is demanding bombing of Pakistan.”

Later, Ali Muhammad Sagar led the Opposition walk-out from the assembly.
