Congress Submits Two Adjournment Motions Submitted in House



Congress submitted two adjournment motions in state legislature.

“In a bid to corner the PDP-BJP coalition Government, the Congress party moved two adjournment motions in both Houses of the Legislature for Monday seeking revocation of 12.5 per cent Services Tax (ST) imposed on air borne pilgrims of Mata Vaishno Devi and other shrines and discussion on the Government failure to provide relief and rehabilitation to September 2014 flood victims,” a statement by Congress MLA GM Saroori said Sunday evening.

The Congress legislators submitted two adjournment motions separately in Legislative Assembly and Council for suspension of entire business on Monday and taking up discussion on the motions moved by them in both Houses of the Legislature.

“One of the resolutions moved by Congress MLA from Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori along with Aijaz Ahmad Khan, Usmaan Majid, Choudhary Akram, Mohammad Amin Bhat, Haji Abdul Rashid Dar, Mumtaz Khan and Ghulam Ahmad Wani wanted suspension of the Assembly business on Monday and discussion on 12.5 per cent Services Tax imposed by Finance Minister Dr Haseeb Drabu on the helicopter services on all the shrines in the state,” the statement said.

Further, Saroori said, “the order would also cover air ambulance services and put burden on the patients.”

He said the PDP-BJP Government order will reduce flow of tourists to Jammu and Kashmir, which has already gone down this year, a fact itself admitted by the Government. “The Government should take steps to promote tourism and not to demote it as several people were linked to the tourism business.’’
