'Raising pro-Pakistan slogans my personal view', says National Conference MLA

Pak should stop sending militants otherwise India can wage war Farooq

Jammu and Kashmir National Conference MLA Mohammad Akbar Lone on Saturday said that he raised "Pakistan Zindabad" slogans inside the House in reaction and he will not take back his words. Speaking to the reporters over the matter, Akbar Lone stated that he started shouting "Pakistan Zindabad" after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs started shouting "Pakistan Murdabad". BJP's GVL Narasimha Rao slammed Lone and demanded that he be sacked from the National Conference. NC legislators Javed Rana, Ali Mohd Sagar, Akbar Lone, Abdul Majid Larmi and others trooped into the Well of the House seeking an apology from the Speaker.

"The statement of Speaker Kavinder Gupta shows what they have in their mind", he claimed. Nothing will happen by shouting anti-Pakistan or pro-Pakistan slogans.

This is the first time in the history of J&K assembly that a Speaker has expunged his own remarks in the house.

"With such statements situation will get deteriorated".

The National Conference distanced itself from Lone's slogan. "We should not jump to the conclusion when the investigation is still on", he said, adding, "Jammu and Kashmir is a secular state". On the other hand, while criticising the controversial remarks by Akhbar Lone, Farooq Abdullah said, "Lone should remember the oath he swears in the name of God at the beginning of his terms". The MLA should not forget that he belongs to a party that rejected the two-nation theory.

As the exchanges heated up further, the Speaker adjourned the House for 15 minutes.

The party spokesman, Junaid Matoo, also in a tweet said that the entire party has a clear stand regarding the issue.

Senior party leader Omar Abdullah said instead of getting "distracted" by "misplaced slogans", the focus should be on the suspected militant attack.
