SRINAGAR, JULY 01 (PTK):Congress MP from Himachal Pradesh Viplove asked Amit Shah that if Lok Sabha election can take place why cannot the Assembly Elections be held simultaneously in J&K.
She accused the government of misleading and providing excuses. “Do no make excuses like Ramzan and Amarnath to not hold assembly polls,” she said.
Meanwhile, BJP’s Rakesh Sinha countered Thakur mentioning the development projects funded by the Modi government. “Few people, hailing from Pakistan, with the idea of terrorism have ruined the ‘fiza’ of the Valley,” he remarked.
Trinamool Congress MP Derek O’Brien also asked Home minister Amit Shah that if Parliament election can be held in Jammu and Kashmir then why can’t the government hold Assembly polls.
Meanwhile Citing non-feasibility of holding state election in the Valley, Amit Shah said government is forced to extend President’s Rule in the state. “Because of Ramzan, Amarnath Yatra and the moving of the nomadic tribes to the plains, elections will only be possible by October end.
The government has no other solution. Hence the house should approve the extension of President’s rule,” said Shah. (PTK)
