Noisy scenes by the opposition in the Jammu and Kashmir assembly on Tuesday forced the Speaker to adjourn the House twice as the lawmakers took up the discussion on the Goods and Services Tax (GST) implementation.
Opposition MLAs belonging to the National Conference (NC), the Congress and Independents stood up on their seats and later rushed towards the Speaker's chair as the four-day long special session started here.
The House would resume at 2.30 p.m.
The opposition believes it will infringe on the special status of the state.
Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in the country where the GST has not been implemented so far.
