Protests held across AJK due to scuffle in assembly


Protest demonstrations were held in Muzaffarabad and other areas of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on Tuesday over the call of opposition parties against the misbehavior of a minister with former premier AJK Raja Farooq Haider during the legisla-tive assembly session the other day. Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Sardar Fahim Akhtar Rabbani tossed a mobile phone at former prime minister after a hard talk during debate on a privi-lege motion moved by op-position leader Ch. Latif Akbar.

He then tried to rush towards Farooq Haider, but was prevented from doing so by his colleagues. Soon after that protest demonstrations were held outside the assembly building and other areas of the city but latter protesters dispersed after opposi-tion and government members initiated a dialogue to settle down the issue.

But latter, late night opposition after failure of the negotiation had announced to carryout protest rallies throughout the territory against the incident.
