PDP moves adjournment motion
Srinagar, Oct 2: Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has submitted an adjournment motion to press the government on the crisis caused by “disappearance” of LPG “which is threatening the entire society in the state.”
“The PDP has decided to take up the issue on the House and outside as it realizes that in the absence of any other alternative fuel, LPG is the most essential commodity needed by every house. Even many households have been out of the cooking gas or they are on the brink of starvation,” a handout issued by PDP said.
“In view of the recent decision of the state government in pursuance of union government’s direction to raise the prices of Diesel and cooking gas, as also the fresh directions from the state government to recast the LPG list, panic has spread across state with a grave situation arising out of that, as the issue concerns common man. It is therefore, moved that normal business of the House be suspended on 03-10-2012 to discuss the issue of grave and urgent public importance,” reads the adjournment motion submitted by the PDP, according to the statement.
The principal opposition party has also given notice for discussion in the House on recent killings of Panchs and Sarpanchs. “I intend to raise a matter of urgent public importance in the august House for discussion i.e. the recent killings of Panchs and Sarpanchs, threat to their lives in absence of required protection and empowerment which has made each one of them vulnerable and has created an atmosphere of insecurity and distrust likely to undermine the democratic institutions. The same may, therefore, be allowed at the earliest,” reads the notice given by PDP MLA Nizamu-ud-Bhat and supported by Abdul Rehman Veeri and Muhammad Khalil Bandh.
Meanwhile, Legislative Assembly Speaker, Muhammad Akbar Lone Tuesday said that he has accepted the resolution moved by PDP and a similar resolution moved by NC.
“Yesterday PDP president Mehbooba Mufti submitted an adjournment motion and today National Conference leader Choudhary M Ramzan also submitted another adjournment motion”, the Speaker told local news gathering agency KNS.
“Both have desired that discussion be held so that the problem of non availability of LPG is solved. I have allowed them and the discussion will be held after the question hour on Wednesday”, he added. GKNN/KNS
