There was pandemonium in the Jammu and Kashmir legislative council here Wednesday over the tabling of a resolution seeking resumption of India-Pakistan talks.
 
The resolution said dialogue is needed so that tension along the border between the two countries is eased.
 
Devender Rana of the ruling National Conference (NC), who intended to table the resolution, was allowed by the chairman to speak on the resolution. 
 
But members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party stood on their seats, asserting that sufficient time had not been given to them to study the resolution.
 
The move was also opposed by NC leader Shahnaz Ganai, who said Rana had been allowed to table the resolution while her calling attention motion on connected issues had been ignored.
 
In the resulting ruckus, Rana left the house. 
 
He told IANS that he had left the house, but was not staging a walkout. 
 
"I am really feeling bad over people doing politics over such a sensitive and humanitarian issue. People are dying and there are people who are trying to do politics over the issue," Rana said.
