TMC MPs raise concern in Parliament over the situation in J&K
Trinamool Congress MPs raised concern on the recent situation in Jammu & Kashmir in both the Houses of the Parliament.
Derek O’Brien spoke in the Rajya Sabha on the issue of the serious compromises on the security of the country and asked the Prime Minister to come and explain. “It is pretty obvious that the selfish convenience of politics has won over conviction. There was no conviction in that alliance and now the BJP and the Government have to come clear on this”, he said.
Kalyan Banerjee also raised the issue in the Lok Sabha and condemned the release of separatist leader Masrat Alam. “The way Masrat Alam has been released, this is deprecated. I don’t understand why the Hon’ble Prime Minister did not make any statement in public, despite that BJP and PDP government is running the Government in Jammu and Kashmir. This Central Government is having a tacit support in releasing leader Masrat Alam”, he said.
