Srinagar: Rubbishing Jammu and Kashmir government's statement that it wants the political process in the state to go on, the J&K National Panthers Party today demanded convening of an Assembly session immediately.

"The NC government is deceiving the centre by saying that it wants the political process to go on. Omar Abdullah's statement is baseless and misleading," JKNPP Chairman Bhim Singh told reporters here today.

"To gauge how much support the ruling government enjoys in the Assembly, we demand urgent convening of the assembly session," he said.

Singh, who was taken into preventive custody yesterday along with ten of his supporters ahead of his proposed march to Lal Chowk, said he would hold a convention in Ladakh and in other districts of Kashmir.

Accusing the National Conference-led coalition of misusing the Public Safety Act, Singh said, "NC and Congress have always been misusing the PSA. The judicial process has been vitiated by the ruling alliance."

"There should be no detention without trial. If you think someone is doing something wrong, arrest them but as per law. Don't pass judgements without trials," he said.
