Akalis: JK languages Bill murder of democracy

Share This

Chandigarh, September 23

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal today expressed shock and anguish at the manner in which the Jammu and Kashmir Official Languages Bill, 2020, was cleared in Parliament.

He said it was condemnable that the voice of the people of Jammu and Kashmir in

support of Punjabi language had been muzzled.

Terming the passage of the Bill 'murder of democracy', Sukhbir said it was a matter of deep concern that parliamentary procedures had not been followed while putting up the Bill for approval.

The SAD chief said the Bill was neither put on the agenda of the Lok Sabha yesterday nor was included in the Rajya Sabha today. "Even today the Bill was passed at the last minute in the absence of the Opposition".

Sukhbir condemned the fact that the Bill was taken

up for approval without taking into consideration the objections of the SAD as well as other regional parties of Jammu and Kashmir. — TNS
