J&K Assembly passes Resolution: Resolution passes by voice voting in the house
The present President of National Conference said 27 years ago unfortunate circumstances in Kashmir had necessitated Kashmiri Pandits, members of Sikh community and some Muslims to move out of the valley. Today it has been 27 since they left the valley and we should rise above politics and pass a resolution in the house for their comeback, said Omar.
Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Abdul Rehman Veeri approved that the resolution should be brought in the house when the question hour came to an end. The resolution was passed by verbal voting when Speaker Kavinder Gupta moved the resolution. Hundreds of Kashmiri pandits had left the valley when militancy broke out there.
