Jammu, Jan 2: Independent MLA Engineer Rashid on Tuesday held a protest outside the Jammu and Kashmir legislature here.
Rashid staged the protest just before the House started its Budget session, holding a banner that said: “Right to self-determination the only way out.”
Unless there was a serious problem in the state why would the Centre appoint a special representative to talk to the separatists, Rashid asked while speaking to reporters.
Governor N.N.Vohra addressed the joint session of the state’s bicameral legislature to open the budget session
Calling for right to self-determination ahead of the Governor N N Vohra’s address to both houses of J&K legislature, Rashid called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve Kashmir issue.
He said Kashmir has consumed record level of lives of civilians, government forces personnel and militants this year.
