An opposition National Conference (NC) on Saturday raised Pro-slogans in the state assembly as heated arguments were being exchanged over the ongoing terror attack at station in Jammu city.

Muhammad Akbar Lone, sitting NC MLA from Sonawari assembly constituency in district, created an embarrassing situation when he stood up and shouted pro-slogans when the ruling BJP MLAs were raising anti-slogans to condemn the terror attack on station.

NC spokesman, Junaid immediately went into damage control by posting on Twitter, "has said the NC MLA should not forget that he belongs to a party that rejected the two nation theory and he should also remember the oath he swears in the name of God at the beginning of his term. The party disowns and condemns his remarks."
