Table Afzal Guru resolution again: J&K MLA

india Updated: Oct 01, 2011 22:49 IST

Jammu and Kashmir MLA Sheikh Abdul Rashid, who moved a resolution in the state assembly seeking clemency for Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, has sought governor NN Vohra's intervention in getting the resolution tabled again in the ongoing session.
The resolution was to be tabled on September 28, but the house was adjourned following clashes between Congress and BJP legislators. The nine-day autumn session of the assembly will conclude on Tuesday.

Addressing media persons here on Saturday, Rashid, independent MLA from Langate constituency, said he had called on Vohra on Friday evening.

"The people of J&K want the resolution to be passed and I conveyed their sentiments to the governor," Rashid said.
Guru was convicted in 2004 of plotting the December 13, 2001 attack on Parliament.
