Uproar continues in J-K Assembly over Pak resolution on Afzal Guru
Angry over the state government stand that their demand does not hold good in the House as it had no control over Pakistan. The Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand, a Congress legislator and Law Minister Mir Saifullah, a National Conference member, both opposed the demand saying the Parliament has already passed a resolution condemning Pakistani move.
"What is the harm in Jammu Kashmir Assembly supporting the Parliament resolution?" asked Ashwani Kumar of JSM, evoking strong reaction from Rural Development Minister Ali Mohammad Sagar, a National Conference legislator, saying "we don't need a certificate from you".
The minister's remark ran tempers high with agitating opposition members from Jammu climbing on their benches and raising slogans against Pakistan. One of them even threw mike in the well of the House.
The plea of Assembly Speaker Mubarak Gul telling them that it was wrong to condemn someone not present in the House fell on deaf ears. After sloganeering against Pakistan for nearly half an hour, the agitating members staged walkout from the House.
