Speaker revokes suspension of NC legislators

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir assembly Speaker today revoked the suspension of two National Conference legislators, a day after the party announced to boycott the autumn session.

The suspension of NC legislators Altaf Kaloo and Abdul Majid Larni was revoked today by the Legislative assembly Speaker Kavinder Gupta on Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayed’s request. However, the main opposition party was unwilling to return to the House unless the suspension of legislative council members Ali Mohammad Dar and Showkat Ahmad Ganai was not revoked.

CPI (M) leader Mohammad Yusuf Tarigami also requested the Speaker to revoke the suspension of the NC legislators.
