Srinagar: Independent MLA from Langate, Er Abdul Rasheed and Peoples Conference legislator from Kupwara, Bashir Ahmad Dar, Wednesday almost exchanged blows in Lower House of the legislature had Assembly marshals and other legislators not intervened.
The issue cropped up when Dar was speaking in support of his private bill about some amendments. However, Er Rasheed commented during the speech, which infuriated Dar.
“Be in your sleeves,” Dar shouted toward Rasheed.
But Rasheed shouted back and the two entered into a verbal duel.
“Chai Pillane walle…..non sense…. I will expose you,” Dar shouted at Rasheed.
Rasheed retorted back, saying: “Lone Sahab ke gadoora”.
The two members got near to each other and almost exchanged blows.
But the marshals present in the House intervened. The legislators also tried to intervene and pacify the two angry members.
Sensing that the situation was aggravating, Speaker LA Kavinder Gupta adjourned the House for the day. (KNS)
