BJP member removed from Assembly

Srinagar, October 1
BJP member Beli Baghat was removed from the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly today after he was suspended by Speaker Abdul Ahad Vakil for disobeying the Chair.

The trouble started immediately after the House assembled for the day when the Speaker called the name of Mr Baghat to raise the question he had given in written to the assembly secretariat.

However, Mr Baghat protested and said the question mentioned in the file under question number 593 was never asked by him.

The Speaker called the record and showed it to Mr Baghat the question paper signed by him. He came into the well of the House and said his signatures were forged and demanded an immediate inquiry into the entire matter.

On this, the Speaker directed him to resume the seat as he would look into the matter.

Not satisfied with the reply of Speaker, Mr Baghat said he was walking out of the House in protest. But, before he could leave the House, the Speaker said no member could walk out through the well of the House and suspended him for the rest of the session.

Later, the ward and watch officials removed him from the house. UNI

Now jobs for kin of J&K terror victims

Srinagar, October 1
The Jammu and Kashmir Government has announced to give employment to the next of kin of those killed in militant violence in the state against the earlier decision to give them Rs 5 lakh as ex-gratia grant.

Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah told the Jammu and Kashmir legislative Assembly today that it was not possible to pay Rs 5 lakh as one-time grant to the next of kin of the deceased because of the high toll due to the prevailing insurgency in the state. He said it had been again decided to give employment to one family member of the deceased.

When a Congress member alleged that no employment was given to the family members of those killed by militants in Jammu region when Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee went on Lahore yatra, the Chief Minister said he would look into the matter.

Dr Abdullah, during the previous Assembly session, had announced that since it was not possible to provide employment to family members of the deceased, the state government had decided to pay a one-time compensation of Rs 5 lakh. UNI
