Srinagar, Oct 3: An independent legislator on Saturday continuously disrupted the first day of Jammu and Kashmir assembly’s autumn session as he accused the PDP-BJP government of carrying forward the agenda of the RSS.
MLA Engineer Rashid asked Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, who was present in the house, to clarify his party’s stand on the beef ban issue.
The legislator has already submitted a bill seeking revocation of a 1862 law that bans slaughter, sale and possession of beef in the state.
Chief Minister Sayeed and Leader of Opposition Omar Abdullah paid tributes to former president Kalam and others in the obituary reference.
The house observed two-minute’s silence as a mark of respect. The house was later adjourned for the day.
