Tarigami To Call On Mehbooba Today
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Oct 1: The Business Advisory Committee of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly Friday decided to approach the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to end its boycott of the ongoing summer session.
The committee, which met with Speaker Muhammad Akbar Lone soon after the day’s proceedings, nominated CPI (M) MLA M Y Tarigami as its emissary to persuade the PDP leadership to end its boycott of the session, official sources said.
PDP, which is the largest opposition party in the Assembly with 21 members, Thursday decided to boycott the entire session as a mark of protest against the killings during the ongoing unrest and to express solidarity with the bereaved families.
The sources said the decision to convince the opposition party to end the boycott was taken in order to ensure that issues concerning the people are discussed in the House with representatives from all constituencies raising the concerns of their respective areas.
Tarigami is likely to call on PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed or party president, Mehbooba Mufti, on Saturday to convey the decision of the Advisory Committee, asking PDP to reconsider their decision of boycotting the session.
“I will approach the PDP president possibly tomorrow with the decision of the advisory committee,” Tarigami said.
