Assembly: Lower house adjourned amid pandemonium

Speaker Kavinder Gupta on Tuesday adjourned the house after ruling and opposition lawmakers including independent lawmaker Er Rasheed exchanged heated arguments during the special session of the assembly in the lower house.

The house was debating the implementation of GST regime in Jammu and Kashmir.

As the speaker asked the assembly security to marshal out Rasheed from the house, opposition lawmakers prevented security guards from marshaling him out.

Earlier, Rasheed and ruling PDP lawmaker Javed Baigh exchanged heated words.

“Aap qoam k Gaddar ho. Qoami Gaddar,” Rasheed told Baigh.

This infuriated Baigh, who told Rasheed, “We will hang you at a fourway.”

Rasheed replied by saying that Kashmir is a disputed territory. “Yeh kisi ki jageer nahi hai.”

These arguments continued for several minutes, with NC lawmakers also exchanging words with the BJP lawmakers.

BJP lawmakers were demanding an apology from Rasheed over his Gaddar remarks.

The house has been adjourned till 2:30.
