A day after Opposition held protests and showed black flags against the PDP-BJP government in Jammu and Kashmir Assembly, BJP on Tuesday resorted to protests over disrespecting the national anthem.

Speaker Kavinder Gupta, on behalf of the House strongly condemned the action. The Budget Session of Jammu and Kashmir Assembly witnessed a stormy start as opposition held protests against the PDP-BJP government and continued sloganeering even when the national anthem was being played.

Not only this, Governor N N Vohra had to cut short his address to both Houses of the legislature amid the pandemonium.
