Srinagar: Cutting across party lines, the rulings parties and Opposition legislators Friday again created ruckus on the third consecutive day over government's “failure” in granting promotion in to reserved category employees.

As soon as the Lower House started its proceedings, the opposition legislators from Congress led by MLA Nawang Rigzin Jora stood up from the treasury bench and was joined by his fellow legislators including Ch Muhammad Akram , Gulzar Ahmad Wani and Independent legislator Asghar Ali Karbalai who created uproar in the Assembly and stormed into the well.

Jora demanded that the government should amend the provisions regarding the reservation in promotion of the reserved category.

“Today it is demand of the grants for the social welfare ministry and the government should amend the provisions regarding the reservation in promotion of the reserved category,” he said.

Jora held that the court was not preventing the government in restoring reservation in promotion of reserved category. “We don't understand why isn't the issue being discussed here even when the court doesn't prevent the government in restoring reservation in promotion of reserved category,” he added.

Meanwhile the Congress lawmakers were joined by few legislators of the ruling BJP including Dina Nath and MLA Chamb Krishan Baghat who raised slogans against the government's failure in restoring rights of the reserved category.

The Speaker earlier disallowed for any question from the opposition over the issue citing the opposition have been effecting the normal proceeding of the House by raising same issue repeatedly.

The protesting MLA went to the Treasury Benches where the legislators from PDP and BJP joined in the protest.

Responding to the demand put by the opposition, Minister for Rural Development Abdul Haq Khan on the behalf of the Government said that the government had not privilege to discuss the issue in the House. “Our government is equally interested in the issue but the issue is now in the Supreme Court. Our government is pursuing the issue and once the Supreme Court announces any verdict we will discuss over it. The government can't amend or discuss the issue when it is already being discussed in Supreme Court,” he said.

Later the protesting MLA went to their respective benches after speakers asked them to refrain from disrupting the proceeding of the House.
