Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday hit out at National Conference and Congress for "not allowing" the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council to function smoothly in current session. In a statement here, the BJP spokesman Khalid Jehangir said, "It is unfortunate that opposition is not allowing legislature to function. All of us are aware that it's a short session and would end within a week. There are many issues which need to be discussed but the opposition has politicized the beef issue and is disrupting the proceedings in the House."
Taking a dig at the NC working president Omar Abdullah, Jehangir said, "The former Chief Minister seems to have forgotten that his party has been outrightly rejected by the masses. Omar as CM proved a big failure and his hands are smeared with the blood of 120 youth who were killed during 2010 unrest. He should focus on rebuilding his party rather than giving sermons on governance."
Lashing out at Congress, the BJP spokesman said, "Despite ruling the country for nearly 50 years, the party failed to live upto the expectations of the masses. After biting dust in parliamentary and assembly elections its leaders are trying to project themselves as Messiahs of people. If they (Congress leaders) are really interested in addressing the issues concerning people they should raise them in the House rather than creating pandemonium over non-issues."
