Sack J&K Speaker for speaking “against army”: CCI writes to PM

Jammu, May 15: The Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Jammu on Tuesday in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested him to sack Jammu and Kashmir Speaker Dr Nirmal Singh for his alleged ‘anti-Army’ remarks. “We feel anguished over the recent statement given by Dr Nirmal Singh, Speaker, J&K State Legislative Assembly accusing “Indian Army of harassing people”. the CCI Jammu in a letter addressed to the PM said after a meeting. They said that the Chamber feels that a person holding the second highest constitutional post in the State of J&K and speaking against the credentials of Indian Army by such irresponsible utterances is not in national interest. “Any Indian will always stand by Indian Army in any given situation and shall not tolerate such statement from anyone whosoever it may be,” they said and added that Chamber feels that by speaking against the army the speaker has not only brought a bad name to the pride of “Dogras” but has also brought a bad name on the political party he belongs to. “The Chamber requests your good-selves to intervene in the matter and sack him immediately not only from holding this prestigious post but also from the party lines,” said the CCI members.
