The Jammu and Kashmir assembly today witnessed noisy scenes and a walkout by the opposition JKNPP BJP and JSM over non-inclusion of questions relating to J&K Bank.
During the question hour in state Legislative Assembly today JKNPP member Harshdev Singh raised the issue that his questions on Jammu and Kashmir Bank are not listed in the business.
"Why questions on J&K Bank are not figuring in the business? I have submitted questions on it," he said and drew the attention of Speaker Mohammad Akbar Lone on it.
State Finance Minister Abdul Rahim Rather intervened and stated as J&K Bank is an autonomous body the rules do not allow to discuss the issue relating to it in the Assembly.
However Singh quoting business ruling said Rather can answer the questions relating to the bank as it falls under his ministry. Singh was joined by other JKNPP members and BJP members who raised the issue of back door appointment in the bank.
Raising slogans like "stop loot in J&K Bank" and "stop back door appointments in J&K Bank" BJP JKNPP and JSM members staged a walkout from the House.
