JAMMU: Describing the prolonged suspension of J&K Assembly as unconstitutional, Harsh Dev Singh, JKNPP Chairman and former Minister, On Friday announced JKNPP would approach the Supreme Court in case immediate steps were not taken for its early dissolution.
He said that it was unprecedented in the history of the country that any legislative Assembly had been kept in suspended animation for as long as five months with no decision being taken about its fate. And on top of that, all members of suspended Assembly were being granted all powers, privileges and perks as were available only to members of a regular Assembly in circumvention of the prescribed procedures and established norms, said Singh. He was addressing a press conference here on Friday.
Asserting that suspension of Assembly can’t be allowed for indefinite period, Singh said that it was supposed to be a temporary period to give opportunity to various political parties to delineate their respective stands with regard to govt formation in the State.
And if none of the parties or combination of political parties was in a position to form the govt, the only alternative was to dissolve the Assembly in conformity with the law established on the subject, said Singh.
Present in the press conference was Rajiv Mahajan District President Jammu (Urban) of JKNPP.
