Srinagar: Claiming that the state government would not pass the Transworld Muslim University Bill, Peoples Democratic Party MLA, Javed Mustafa Mir, said he would resign if the government proved his assertion wrong.
Government doesnt want to pass the pending bill. If it proves me wrong, Ill resign from my seat, Mir told reporters.
He staged walk out on Wednesday from the Assembly after he wasnt satisfied with the reply to his question by minister for social welfare, Sakina Ittoo.
Mir had asked the question pertaining to his constituency Chadoora in which he had wanted to know if government proposes to declare Kandi areas of Chadoora as backward.
In reply to his question, the minister said that in case kandi areas of Chadoora fulfilled the prescribed criteria, the matter could be considered for its inclusion in the backward list. However, the State Backward Classes Commission has not received any representation as on the date from any such area, she said.
Reacting sharply to the reply, Javed walked out from the House. (ONS)
