    The over month long Assembly session will begin in Jammu with the address of Governor N N Vohra to joint sitting of State legislature on January 2 and end on February 4.

    While the opposition has decided to corner the PDP-BJP government in the budget session as it takes place in backdrop of prolonged unrest in the valley. The opposition will also raise the issue of demonetization and recent judgement on SARFAESI Act.

    Conference General Secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar, said they will raise all issues of public importance in the budget session. “There is a complete failure of the PDP-BJP government. Our first priority will be to raise the issue of civilian killings and use of pellet guns in which scores of our children lost their eye-sight,” Sagar said.

    He said the NC legislators have also submitted various resolutions against “civilian killings” in Kashmir during unrest, “ban on pellet guns” and “Indo-Pak dialogue for the settlement of Kashmir issue”.

    “We will also raise the issue of granting identity certificates to the WPR that is an attack on J&K's special position,” he said.

    Besides, he said the NC will raise the issues about hardships people of all three regions are facing. “We will try our best to represent the people and expose the failures of the ruling parties,” he added.

    Senior Congress leader Nawang Rigzin Jora, said his party will raise the issue of five month long unrest in the valley.

    “During these months so many youth were killed. Burhan Wani was only a trigger but there was already anger among people against the PDP-BJP government. We will also seek ban on pellet guns,” Jora said.

    The Congress leader said they will also raise the issue of WPR. “While in opposition, Mehbooba Mufti was opposed of granting citizenship rights to WPR and now her government has given them identity cards. Her party PDP should clear its stand on the issue,” he said. “It was Congress party that made a package to give Rs 25 lakh to each family of WPR and now the BJP has reduced it to Rs 5 lakh.”

    He said the PDP-BJP government was missing on the ground and only existed on the newspapers. “No development took place in their tenure. Economy is completely shut due to demonetization. There are scores of issues on which we will expose the PDP-BJP government,” he added.

    Senior CPI (M) leader and legislator Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami has also submitted three resolutions in Jammu and Kashmir Assembly on constitution of a Commission of Inquiry headed by retired Supreme Court judge to probe the recent civilian killings in Kashmir, urging upon the Government of to initiate dialogue to find solution to Kashmir issue and also ban the use of pellet guns by security forces.
