Kashmir Legislative Council elects new chairman

Srinagar, July 20, 2007:

The upper house of the legislature in Indian administered Kashmir today elected Ghulam Nabi Lone (Hanjoora) of the ruling ally Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as its chairman.

Legislator Ashok Sharma of the ruling Congress party moved a motion proposing Lone as the chairman of the J&K Legislative Council. Ved Prakash Gupta seconded the motion.

A similar motion was also moved by Bilal Ahmad Lodhi of PDP and seconded by Ali Mohammad Sofi.

However, the third motion of Mohammad Rasheed Qureshi of the opposition National Conference proposing NC legislator Ms Sakina Itoo as the chairwoman could not be moved as the National Conference had boycott the proceedings and no member of the party was present in the House, when acting Chairman P Namgyal called for moving the motion.

The 22 members present in the Council unanimously voiced in favour of Lone.

Lone, an advocate by profession, lost in the last parliamentary elections to National Conference Presidnet Omar Abduallah from Srinagar Budgam constituency in central Kashmir.
