After the National Conference decided to boycott rest of the assembly session in Jammu and Kashmir following the suspension of its four members from Upper and Lower House, the Congress is likely to do the same.

Even after the suspension was revoked by the speaker, the National Congress said it would still boycott the assembly session as planned.

Following the suspension of four NC legislators by J&K assembly speaker, the Congress legislators met in Srinagar on Tuesday evening and decided that they will ask for the revocation of suspension of the NC legislators. However, if the suspension is not revoked, Congress legislators will stage walkout from Upper and Lower House and will boycott rest of the assembly session.

”The Congress legislators have taken a decision that we will seek revocation of suspension of legislators. The (PDP -BJP) have adopted dictatorship instead of Democratic way to resolve things,” said a senior Congress leader.

Congress has 12 legislators in the assembly while NC has 15 members in the assembly. Right from the start of the autumn session, both the Houses have witnessed chaos.
