Leaders condemn security breach in J-K Assembly

      Political leaders on Monday condemned the pandemonium that erupted in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly as two youth suddenly jumped in the well of the House and raised slogans demanding implementation of employment policy.

Senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar said that nobody has the right to undermine the sanctity of the Assembly. "It is very unfortunate that something like that has happened and nobody can undermine the sanctity of the state legislature. The speaker has already issued instruction against whosoever is responsible and I think it is very unfortunate," said Anwar. Meanwhile, People Democratic Party (PDP) leader Nizamuddin Bhat said that his party would not back the cause of the protesters as they had disrupted the sanctity of the house.

"After the speaker issued a statement in the house, we don't want to comment on it. We do not believe that the people who breached security and entered the assembly were actually facing problems due to unemployment or had come to stand for the unemployed youth. We would have stood by them if they represented the masses, however we would still not allow them to interrupt proceedings of the house and protest in the manner they did," said Bhat.

The duo was held by house marshals and dragged outside the assembly. Media reports suggest that investigation is on to determine how they entered the assembly and if they belong to any political party.
