Assembly sees war of words on SPO, J&K Bank recruitment issue 

JAMMU: Legislators of the opposition and the ruling PDP-BJP today traded barbs over the issue of alleged malpractices in recruitments for Special Police Officers (SPO) and the J&K Bank in the Budget Session of the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.

Minutes before the closure of the day’s business, National Conference legislator Altaf Kaloo, while speaking on the Budget, accused the State Government of the malpractices, drawing State Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu’s attention.

The Minister, countering the charges, asked Kaloo to stop levelling unsubstantiated allegations and come out with a proof in support of his claim. (AGENCIES)
