Demanding a threadbare discussion on Article 35 A, legislators of Opposition National Conference Tuesday created a ruckus in the legislative assembly.

Article 35 A upholds the unique status of the permanent residents of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier, Hakeem Yasin and MY Tarigami created the disruption in the house by demanding a discussion on regularization of daily wagers and NYC volunteers.

Greater Kashmir had today reported about the 'silence' of both the leaders in the assembly on Monday after speaker disallowed their adjournment motion.

"The two members instead kept silently watching the proceedings which were frequently disrupted by NC, Congress and independent MLA Er Abdur Rashid, forcing the Speaker to suspend the proceedings repeatedly," your paper reported.

As soon as the proceedings started, the two leaders were the first to create a disruption.

Later, Ali Muhammad Sagar while leading the opposition, charged the Speaker of "suppressing" the voice of Opposition.

He said that they were not coming to the assembly with "guns and grenades" and that they wanted to take up issues of people within the ambit of the Constitution.

The members of Opposition even jumped into the Well of the House.

However, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Basharat Bukhari retorted that the article couldn't be discussed as the matter was sub-judice.

"The matter is in Supreme Court," he said. "The state government knows how to take care of the state's Special Status."
