Early Times Report
Jammu, Jan 10: Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly Tuesday witnessed uproar as the opposition trained guns at the Speaker for allegedly twisting remarks of opposition.
As soon as assembly resumed after yesterday's adjournment, opposition sought answer from the speaker for allegedly twisting their slogans.
The opposition led by Congress lawmaker Nawang Rigzin Jora, NC legislator-Devinder Singh Rana, supported by other members raised anti- speaker slogans like, 'RSS speaker hai hai, one sided speaker hai hai, Jhooth speaker hai hai, Communal speaker hai hai and sharam karo sharam karo jhoota speaker sharam karo.'
Speaker Kavinder Gupta had said the opposition had lowered the prestige of the House by raising anti-national slogans "Kashmir banega Pakistan (Kashmir will become Pakistan)" on Monday. Strongly denying the charge, the opposition members disrupted the question hour by resorting to sloganeering while some of them trooped into the Well of the House asking the Speaker to take back his remarks.
CPI (M) MLA M Y Tarigami said that though he was not present in the house, but he monitored the proceedings and no member in the House had resorted to such slogans, adding that such remarks should not have come from the Chair.
He also requested the Speaker to take back his remarks.
Meanwhile, Jora clearing the air said on Monday the Congress MLA
There was uproar in the LA yet again as the
opposition accused the speaker of twisting their comments and slogans.
were raising slogans like "PDP ka kya farman, Kashmir banega kabristan (what is PDP's call, Kashmir should become a graveyard)". He had said these remarks were misinterpreted by the Speaker, while threatening to move a no-confidence motion against him along with other opposition parties.
Intervening in the house, Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said the opposition members should not raise any question mark on the Chair. "The opposition should not say so," he said, requesting the Speaker to resolve the issue.
Amid din of more than 40 minutes, the speaker said, "If I have misheard anything I take my words back." On this, Jora thanked the Speaker for showing magnanimity by taking back his words.
Reacting to the speaker's decision of withdrawing his remarks, Congress MLA Nawan Rigzin Jora says that the people of Ladakh including him need no sermon of nationalism from people like speaker or anyone else.
"We have fought Kargil War --- we remain at the forefront of wars" said Jora. After speaker withdrew his controversial remarks, opposition parties including Congress had decided not to press for no confidence motion against speaker.
Earlier, MY Tarigami said that speaker of the house had been chosen with the consent of all. "We did not oppose your recommendation and installed you on this chair with huge responsibility, but now you are partial in functioning," said Tarigami.
