NPP, BJP protest in Assembly over reservations in BDC polls
Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir assembly on Wednesday witnessed unruly scenes over the issue of reservations for women and SC/STs in the upcoming block development council polls.
Members of the National Panthers Party and Bharatiya Janata Party staged a protest and stormed into the well of the house demanding reservation for OBCs, SCs and STs in the polls.
BDC polls are scheduled to be held in the first week of next month and there is no reservation for women, Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) in the BDCs under the present Panchayati Raj Act.
