No action against NC MLA Lone for raising pro-Pak slogans in House

JAMMU: A day after National Conference (NC) MLA Mohammad Akbar Lone raised "Pakistan Zindabad" slogans within the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly, an reliable from the Speaker's administrative center said they were not considering any action in opposition to the legislator.
"We don't want to stretch the matter further," said an reliable from Speaker Kavinder Gupta's administrative center.

The MLAs of the ruling BJP-PDP alliance too said they'd determined to ignore the remarks made by means of Lone, who may be a former minister. "It was out of his frustration that Lone raised the slogan. Since the Budget session of the assembly is over now, we should not stretch the issue," said a BJP MLA.


Lone raised the slogan after Speaker Kavinder Gupta remarked that Rohingya refugees living close to the Sunjuwan Army camp, which was attacked by means of terrorists early on Saturday, may have been at the back of it. While Gupta later expunged his own remarks, Lone, who were the Speaker of the House all through the Omar Abdullah govt between 2009 and 2013, came out of the House and said he stood by means of what he said.


"I was hurt as a Muslim when BJP members raised anti-Pakistan slogans when the government informed the House of the attack and the deaths of two Army personnel because of it," Lone had said.


The opposition Congress, alternatively, demanded that appropriate action will have to be taken in opposition to Lone. "We want action against the former speaker for raising such slogans. He is a person, who in the past has occupied such a high constitutional position," he said.


People's Democratic Party (PDP) spokesperson Rafi Ahmed Mir also termed the slogans unfortunate and said, "He (Lone) is in India and raising such slogans in the assembly cannot be approved."
