Landmark legislation: Sagar
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Apr 9: Describing the Bill on Inter-District Recruitment passed by the State Legislature as a landmark legislation, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ali Muhammad Sagar on Friday said that the coalition government has fulfilled its commitment made with the people.
“All the speculations have been laid to rest as the coalition managed to pass the bill as per the aspirations of the people”, the Law Minister said while addressing media persons, soon after the House passed the legislation.
Terming the allegations levelled by PDP as baseless and far from truth, Sagar said, “Speaker Muhammad Akbar Lone initiated debate on the bill but the PDP legislators interrupted the Speaker without seeking permission from the Chair”. He said the PDP legislators not only violated the rules and precedence but even tried to challenge the mandate of the Chair.
“They (PDP leaders) have always tried to befool the people by floating obnoxious ideas and theories,” he said and added that the people of the State are aware that they (PDP) have always drawn political mileage by pitting one region and section against other.
The Minister said that the Bill would go a long way in clearing the apprehensions of the people and would serve as a befitting reply to the forces bent on creating divisions between different sections and regions of the State.
