NC MLAs join opposition over delimitation commission report
Embarrassment for Govt
Jammu, Mar 6: In an embarrassing situation for the government, National Conference MLAs today stormed into well and joined opposition while demanding tabling of Delimitation Commission report in the State Assembly, here on Tuesday.
The members, cutting across the party lines, created ruckus in the House seeking explanation from the government as why it was shying away from making the report of Commission constituted for creating new administrative units in the state public before its implementation.
Complete pandemonium was witnessed in the assembly when Choudhary Mohammad Ramzan raised the issue during Question Hour. NC legislators Mir Saifullah and Kafil-Ur-Rehman, PDP legislator Abdul Rehman Veeri, Abdul Haq Khan, Congress MLA Gulam Mohammad Saroori, Abdul Majid Wani, JKNPP Harshdev Singh, BJP Jagdish Raj Spolia also joined him and demanded that the government should table the report before the House.
NC legislators Kafiul Rehman and Mir Saifullah alleged discrimination with their respective constituencies, while the PDP legislator Abdul Rehman Veeri supported the point raised by him. Veeri said that the report should be tabled in the House as the issue pertained to administrative units of entire state.
PDP president Mehbooba Mufti also alleged discrimination with Watchi constituency and demanded discussions on report before its implementation.
Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone intervened and asked the minister whether the government was contemplating to make the report public.
In his reply Minister for Revenue, Relief and Rehabilitation Raman Bhalla said that the Commission was an independent body. “Firstly the recommendations will come to government after which we will decide” he said.
For around 10 minutes NC legislators created ruckus in the House and some of them even stormed the well. They were also joined by PDP MLA Abdul Haq Khan.
