On the day 6th of on-going Autumn session of JK Assembly, NC lawmaker from Pahalgam is apparently stealing the show by calling jibes and cheering for the government, albeit sarcastic ones.
Kaloo who during the first three days of the session was at forefront to trigger ruckus in the house with his ‘funny’ theatrics Friday seems to be at his witty best by making fun and evoking laughter in the house.
The MLA Pahalgam was earlier seen signalling at BJP MLA from Nowshera, Ravinder Raina who was at forefront yesterday to assault Er Rashid. Even Raina realised that Kaloo is apparently ‘poking fun’ at him and repeatedly folded hands towards him to ‘suggest him stop’.
When PWD minister Syed Altaf Bukhari rose to reply to one of the BJP lawmakers from Jammu region about one of the roads in the region, he said, “the government has declared the road as national highway.” To this CM Mufti Sayeed intervened and asked Minister concerned about the status of the road. “We don’t have funds to upgrade the road; we will have to wait,” he said to thumping applause from opposition bench led by Kaloo, who blurted out, “I will see to your (BJP lawmaker) concern,” saying as if, he was the minister.
Again when PHE minister, Sukhnandan, stood to reply to another BJP lawmaker, he said, “Yes, we will be completing the project but funds are awaited.” On this, Kaloo and party broke into thumping applause, forcing minister to retreat.
