New Delhi, Aug 5 : PDP MP Mir Mohammad Fayaz tore the copy of the Indian Constitution as he protested against the Modi government’s decision of scrapping the Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said “I strongly condemn the act of 2-3 MPs(PDP’s Mir Fayaz and Nazir Ahmed Laway who attempted to tear constitution). We stand by the constitution of India. Hum Hindustan ke samvidhaan ki raksha ke liye jaan ki baazi laga denge, but today BJP has murdered constitution.”
PDP’s Rajya Sabha MPs Nazir Ahmad Laway and MM Fayaz staged protest in Parliament premises after resolution revoking Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir moved by the Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Rajya Sabha.
The two PDP MPs were asked to go out of the House after they attempted to tear the constitution by the Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu. Also, PDP MP MM Fayaz tore his kurta while staging a protest.
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader Mehbooba Mufti on Monday described the Modi government’s decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution as “the darkest day in Indian democracy”.
