Srinagar: Opposition PDP members on Tuesday created uproar in the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly protesting alleged neglect of their constituencies in allotment of funds in health sector, leading to a brief adjournment of the House.

PDP members protested after government`s reply to a question on allotment of funds in health sector, alleging that the constituencies represented by the opposition party members were being neglected.

The PDP members stormed into the Well, shouted slogans against the government and demanded a discussion on the matter.

Gul then adjourned the House for 10 minutes.

Similar scenes were witnessed when the House re-assembled.
Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mir Saifullah then agreed to the opposition demand for a discussion, following which normalcy was restored in the House.
