Opposition National Conference led by Omar Abdullah on Sunday staged a walkout from Jammu and Kashmir assembly after their adjournment motion condemning twin terror attacks in Jammu was rejected.

The NC also sought reply from chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for his remarks that non-state actors were involved in the twin terror attacks in Kathua and Samba districts.

NC MLA Devendar Singh Rana had moved a resolution in the House seeking a debate in the Assembly over the terror attacks and CM Muftis' remark.

BJP MLAs also protested and shouted slogans like 'Pakistan murdabad' in the Assembly and demanded befitting reply to Pakistan. They were countered by NC members who termed it as "drama", saying that on the one hand BJP members are in the government and on the other side, they are seeking action against terror attacks.

The resolution was rejected by the speaker resulting in walkout by NC from the House.

"I had brought a resolution in the House to debate the issue of the twin attacks and contradictory statements by the BJP, the government and the security officers.

Even chief minister has blamed non-state actors responsible for the attacks. What are these non-state actors. We want reply from the chief minister to identify the non-state actors", Rana told reporters in Jammu outside the assembly.
