Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) member Hakeem Yaseen alleged discrimination with various constituencies in the state and demanded a reply from the minister for roads and buildings Majid Wani about the grant of roads under the NABARD scheme in each of the Assembly segments of ruling and opposition members.

Yaseen alleged that as per the norms each constituency should have been granted a road under the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) scheme but one constituency has been granted 15 roads in violation of the norms and sought reply from the government.

As the minister was trying to pacify him, other members of JSM, rebel BJP and JKNPP also pressed for the demand.

Amid uproar and noisy scenes by the opposition, the minister tried to satisfy the members by saying that he does not know about it as he had recently taken the command of the ministry and will look into the matter.

Unsatisfied over it, opposition members staged walkout from the House.
