SRINAGAR: Opposition National Conference (NC) MLAs led by party leader and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah staged a walkout from the state assembly on Monday alleging discrimination against the Valley.

The legislators were agitating against the state and central government for not sanctioning an IIT and an IIM for the Valley.

BJP legislators on the other hand got up on their seats shouting slogans against Pakistan who they blamed for masterminding the Pampore attack by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) on Saturday in which eight paramilitary central reserve police force (CRPF) troopers were killed and 22 others injured.

The two suicide (Fidayeen) militants who carried out the attack were also killed in the ensuing gunfight.
