JAMMU: Known for raking controversies every now and then, Independent legislator Er Rashid once again made it to news on the first day of Budget session, his repeated attempts of disrupting the Governor's address managing to irk the latter.
Soon after the entire opposition-NC, Congress, CPI (M) MLA, Tarigami PDF MLA, Hakim Mohammad Yaseen and other independent legislators-staged a joint walkout from the assembly over alleged failure of PDP-BJP government on various fronts, independent legislator Engineer Rashid resorted to repeated disruption of the Governor Address.
Demanding plebiscite, self determination for the people of Jammu and Kashmir, the independent legislator, Engineer Rashid who represents the Langate Constituency of Kashmir, was repeatedly disturbing the Governor from completing his Address to the joint session.
The Governor got so irked to the unruly behavior of Engineer Rashid that he called Chairman, Legislative Council, Haji Anayat Ali and sought to know from the later-"Can't you stop this one man who has taken this entire house for granted?"
Followed by this, the LC Chairman, through a gesture, sought to know from the Speaker Legislative Assembly, Kavinder Gupta about the legal options of marshalling-out the Awami Ittehad legislator, Engineer Rashid.
Speaker, however, through a gesture asked Haji Anayat Ali to let Engineer Rashid's speak.
The LC Chairman Haji Anayat Ali and Speaker Kavinder Gupta have confirmed to this newspaper about the Governor's calling of Haji Anayat Ali in the midst of his address to the LA and LC.
