    Speaker writes-off anthem insult by mere condeming

    Tawi, Jan 03: As some BJP members resorted to protests in the Legislative Assembly over disrespect to national anthem by members of opposition, Speaker Kavinder Gupta, on behalf of the House, today “strongly condemned” the action, a report said.

    The session of Jammu and Assembly began on a stormy note yesterday as opposition held protests against the PDP-BJP government and continued sloganeering even when the national anthem was being played, with Governor N N Vohra cutting short his address to both Houses of the legislature and leaving amid the pandemonium.

    Taking cognizance of the matter, the Speaker said, “The entire House strongly condemns the disrespectful behaviour exhibited by some legislators towards the national anthem.”

    Earlier, the BJP members raising slogans reached near the Well of the House and entered into verbal duels with opposition members over the insult to national anthem which the opposition member resisted without any remorse.

    Responding to the issue raised by the members of the Treasury Benches in the morning, Gupta remarked that the national anthem is the nation's pride and identity.

    “As lawmakers and representatives of the people, it is our responsibility to uphold the dignity of the national anthem,” he said.

    Closing the issue without any formal resolution on condemding the disrespect shown by some of the opposition members, he expressed hoped that such disapproving action will not be repeated in future.
