Srinagar: Demanding a debate on the Afzal Guru Death sentence issue in the forthcoming session of Legislative Assembly, MLA Langate Engineer Rasheed said the importance of the issue requires the thorough attention by the state legislature.
Commenting on BJP submitting resolution demanding the implementation of Guru death sentence, MLA Langate said, “let both my and BJP resolutions be admitted by the Speaker and have a debate on both in the House.
Let’s discuss the pros and cons of both the resolutions in the Assembly in line with the rules and values of a true democratic set-up.” He said when a similar issue was debated in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, why not same can be done in J&K. Saying that his resolution was sabotaged in the previous session of the legislature against the democratic spirit, Engineer Rasheed said, “if the same anti-democracy behaviour is exhibited in the forthcoming session, then it will further waver the trust of the people in the democratic institutions.”
MLA Langate asked NC and PDP not let their narrow party interests come in way of larger interests of the people of the state.
“I hope both the parties will not repeat the shoddy attitude this time vis-à-vis the Guru resolution,” he said. (AIP News)
