Opposition creates noisy scenes in LC, stages walk-out

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Jan 10: Opposition National Conference-Congress first tried their level best to disrupt question hour and later staged walk-out after the Chairman of Legislative Council Haji Anayat as well as the state government turned down their demand for holding a judicial probe by a sitting judge into the killings in Kashmir valley during the last six months of unrest.
It all began within seconds of house meeting for the day's proceedings. Legislators of NC-Congress unanimously stood up on their seats and sought attention of the Chairman Haji Anayat and raised issue of the Chief Minister's remarks that Kashmir unrest was "well planned conspiracy". Chairman allowed both the legislators of NC as well as Congress to speak about issue being raised by them.
Carrying copies of newspapers and constantly waving them towards the media gallery, NC MLC Dr. Basheer Veeri wanted to know why state government was shying away from ordering a judicial probe into the recent unrest in Kashmir valley. Though he seemed more interested in ensuring his protest is registered recorded by Journalists sitting in the press gallery but he kept up making the same point again and again.
"We want a Judicial probe into the Kashmir unrest. State government is claiming of being aware of the people behind the unrest. What is stopping you from letting the state know about those who caused the massive unrest in Kashmir valley," Veeri was heard pleading. Though his focus remained grabbing the attention of Journalists sitting in the press gallery, his colleagues Qasir Jamsheed Lone, Showkat Ganai, Sajjad Kitchloo, Master Noor Hussain and Ali Mohammed Dar joined him in criticising the government for what they described as shying away from ordering a judicial probe into the six month long Kashmir unrest.
They were joined by legislators of Congress namely Naresh Gupta, Rani Gargi Billowria, Jugal Kishore and Ghulam Nabi Monga in raising slogans and clapping in the house. They demanded that a judicial probe be ordered to ascertain who was behind the unrest in Kashmir Valley. Referring to the unrest in Kashmir, which left several people dead and many injured, the chief minister had yesterday said that the unrest took place under a "well-planned conspiracy".
"If it is so, then the government should order probe to find out who were behind all this and they should be punished. For this, we demand a judicial probe," Veeri said. In a similar vein, Kitchloo and Monga also batted strongly for a judicial probe and demanded a reply from the government. Failure to get the reply, the opposition members of National Conference and Congress trooped into the well of the House, raising newspapers and disrupting the proceedings.
They tried their best to disrupt proceedings of the house but the Chairman ensured that the question hour goes on smoothly. Though nothing much could be heard in the noise created by the opposition but the Chairman and the treasury benches refused to relent and ensured that the house functions smoothly. The question hour went on while the opposition protested in the well of the house. First they raised slogans and when that didn't work; they began clapping besides raising all kinds of slogans ranging from PDP's alliance with BJP to influence of RSS over the government.
This continued for 50 minutes and when the question hour was about to conclude, the opposition staged walkout from the legislative council. The entire opposition reappeared once the debate over the Governor's address began.
