BJP demands Pakistan's condemnation in J&K assembly

Srinagar: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs on Saturday protested the killing of Border Security Force (BSF) troopers by the militants and demanded the Jammu and Kashmir assembly to pass a resolution condemning Pakistan and terrorists. Led by MLA Ravinder Raina, the BJP MLAs staged a protest inside state legislative assembly demanding condemnation of Pakistan and terrorists by the house. Speaker Kavinder Gupta told the BJP MLAs that the house shares the grief of the bereaved families and expresses sympathy with them. Independent MLA from Langate constituency Engineer Rashid said the condemnation should not be restricted to acts of terrorism by non-state actors only and when security forces violate human rights, condemnation should be universal. Three BSF troopers were killed and seven injured when militants attacked a BSF convoy in Bijbehara town of Anantnag district on Friday.
