Srinagar, July 4: Jammu and Kashmir Assembly today witnessed chaos over the implementation of Goods and Service tax.

The assembly proceedings were adjourned twice after lawmakers created a ruckus.

Opposition MLAs belonging to the National Conference (NC), the Congress and Independents stood up on their seats and later rushed towards the Speaker’s chair as the four-day long special session started here.

The uproar also prompted Speaker Kavinder Gupta to order marshalling out of Independent MLA Engineer Rashid and some other opposition MLAs after voiced anti-GST slogans.

The opposition parties including the NC, Congress and Independents stated that they were not against the single tax regime, but were against the adoption of Amendment 101 in its present form as they believe it will infringe the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

They argued that surrendering collection of taxes to the GST Council would take away the financial autonomy of the state as guaranteed under Article 370 of the Constitution.

However, Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in the country where the GST has not been implemented so far.
