The members of National Conference and Congress disrupted the national anthem while it was being played twice during a joint session of the Jammu & Kashmir legislature on Monday.
Both the parties shouted anti-government slogans while the national anthem was being played.
The members of the opposition created ruckus at the time when national anthem was being played.
As J&K governor N N Vohra began his address, opposition members raised anti-government slogans and climbed on their desks with placards in hand to protest against the government.
Few of the placards read, “Revoke PSA (the controversial public safety Act)”, “Stop killings in Kashmir”, and “Where is political dialogue?”
The governor abruptly ended his speech after 12 minutes due to the commotion in the house.
Several NC legislators were seen to be black to mark their protest against alleged human rights violations in the valley. The opposition justified the disrespect of the national anthem by stating they were provoked by the treasury benches.
