JAMMU, Jan 17: Congress MLA from Inderwal Ghulam Mohammad Saroori today staged walk-out after verbal duel with the Minister of State for Youth Services and Sports Sunil Sharma in the Legislative Assembly.
While raising supplementary question on the issue of construction of stadiums, Congress MLA alleged, “the previous dispensation had started construction of mini-stadiums in Chatroo, Sarthal and Bunjwah areas of Kishtwar but the present dispensation has stopped the work only because the areas are being represented by opposition party”.
“On the other side the District Sports Officer has given an amount of Rs 5 lakh to an individual for construction of stadium on the directions of Minister Incharge Youth Services and Sports”, Saroori alleged.
Countering the allegations of Congress MLA, the Minister Incharge Youth Services and Sports Sunil Sharma said, “there is no formal approval to any work to which the MLA has made reference”. He said that the previous dispensation might have given few lakhs of rupees to start the work with the sole objective of appeasing the people.
After indulging in verbal duel with the Minister for some time, the Congress MLA staged walk-out.
