Jammu: A senior National Conference (NC) member on Monday walked-out of the Legislative Assembly in protest against the power crisis in Kashmir Valley.
The government faced a hostile opposition today accusing power minister, Nirmal Singh, of taking the house “for-granted”.
“You are giving deal to your power minister who has failed,” NC’s Ali Mohammad Sagar told the government as he walked-out of the house. “You are shielding your power minister.”
Sagar was not satisfied with the response of Singh about completion of a receiving station in Srinagar.
“You are deliberately making Kashmiris suffer,” he told the PDP-BJP coalition government.
Sagar also accused speaker Kavinder Gupta of taking directions from “unknown forces”. “You are bulldozing the opposition,” he told Gupta.
Singh was also questioned over return of power projects and fixing of responsibility of missing of MoU of Dul Hasti.
Later, NC’s Altaf Kaloo and Congress’ Usman Majeed and Vikar Rasool also left the house angrily accusing Gupta of ignoring supplementaries.
