Civilian killing issue rocks house, opposition boycotts CM speech

"We get only to know from newspapers that chief minister is saddened by killings".

Hitting out at the Jammu and Kashmir government, former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday claimed that terrorism has increased in the state under the present government. "If government thinks that civilian killings are not an issue then this government has no moral responsibility to rule", he said. They walked into well of the House and raised banners of "Stop Civilian Killing".

The issue was raised by the former Chief Minister and leader of opposition, Omar Abdullah, who accused the government of being insensitive on the issue.

Soon after Speaker Kavinder Gupta took his seat, the opposition members rose on their feet and started shouting slogans against the PDP-BJP coalition government for its alleged failure to stop innocent killings, and shortly trooped into the well of the House.

One of the opposition members went to the Well of the House, tore a paper and threw the bits up in the air towards the Well of the House. She said the Centre and the state have to solve the issue keeping in view the human aspect.

Omar also asked the government not to project the killing of over 200 militants in 2017 as a success as "it is a "certificate of failure", as more youth have joined militancy during the current dispensation than under NC regime".

"We had called for a separate discussion of the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir. They declined it", the NC leader said.

The chief minister shared in the information in the house after National Conference legislator Sheikh Ishfaq Jabbar sought the district wise details of the land under forces' occupation. "Yesterday, this person who was killed hadn't picked up any gun". Even ruling minister acknowledged it.

NC provincial president Devernder Singh Rana said, "Kashmir is on fire, Jammu smoldering and Ladakh weeping".
