Opposition Insulted The National Anthem By Creating A Ruckus While It Was Playing: J&K BJP

Proceedings were disrupted on the first day of J&K assembly's budget session.


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleged that opposition party members "insulted the national anthem" while disrupting house proceedings on the first day of the Jammu and Kashmir assembly's budget session.

BJP leader Ravinder Raina demanded an apology from National Conference, Congress and Governor for allegedly insulting the national anthem in J&K Assembly.

"NC and Congress created ruckus in the Assembly even when national anthem was played. The Governor also walked away, it's a grave insult to the nation," Raina said.

J&Kashmir Assembly witnessed unruly scenes as National Conference and Congress members created uproar even as national anthem was being played in the House.

The opposition parties were protesting against the BJP-PDP government in J&K.

Unhappy with the Opposition members' behaviour, Governor Narinder Nath Vohra cut short his speech amid pandemonium in House and left the Assembly.

Governor N N Vohra was scheduled to address the joint sitting but was interrupted by members of the opposition parties, who stood up shouting slogans against the PDP- BJP government for the continued unrest in the state.

The J&K assembly's budget session promises to be a stormy one, with the opposition making clear its intention to corner the government on the law and order situation and the months-long unrest in the valley.
