Omar wants CM's statement over civilian killing, leads walk-out

Criticism of Mehbooba govt by J-K Governor indicates her failure Omar

"India is our country and sole benefactor of Jammu and Kashmir", the strong statement asserting Jammu and Kashmir's loyalty to India came from state's chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday. "The Goods and Services Tax was implemented in the entire nation at once, except Jammu and Kashmir, where it was implemented only after a proper debate in this Assembly", she added. She appealed the assembly to use empowerment to become the "Crown" of the country.

"I am happy that we have made a decision to grant amnesty to them also, roughly making it to around nine thousand youth", she announced in the House amidst applauses.

"If we don't believe in the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir, if we don't believe in the country's Constitution, then what do we believe in?"

The Jammu and Kashmir Assembly has been witnessing ruckus over several issues in the last few days. "J&K is confronting the problems of varied nature, some are our own making, some beyond our control", he said, adding that these "so-called domestic and the non-domestic factors created an environment which pulls us back". "The atmosphere is conducive to resolve Kashmiri violence through inclusive political process", Mufti said, adding that Prime Minister can resolve the Kashmir issue once and for all.

Mahatma Gandhi had seen a ray of hope in Kashmir because of the peaceful atmosphere and harmony, she said.

Coming heavily on chief minister- Mehbooba Mufti for remaining absent from the house, Omar said that her absence from the house vindicates how much serious they are about the civilian killings in Kashmir.

She said it was only India that can address the issues facing the people of the state. It demonstrates the empowerment of our legislature, Mufti said. "We have to think where the mistake happened", she said.

"The problem (of Kashmir) is there but its solution lies in humanity".

Earlier, Minister for Revenue, Abdul Rehman Veeri said that the killed youth was innocent and government has initiated a magisterial probe in this matter. "Big contractors are not willing to come here and local contractors do not qualify for major projects", she said.
