"Presently, we are allowing taxes in tourism in Kashmir and industry in Jammu region, " the Deputy Speaker said, adding that "once we surrender our powers under GST, we can not do anything even if we would like to help these industries".

An Official spokesman said here this morning that as has been conveyed to the Information Department by the authorities concerned, no journalist will be allowed to carry video, still camera or mobile inside the Press Gallery of the State Legislature for the coverage of the special session recommencing here today.

Opposition parties and Kashmiri businessmen have been opposing the GST, saying it infringes on J&K's residual political autonomy and its special powers to legislate on financial matters.

The statement said, " Er Rasheed said that the GST crisis issue has exposed Indian claims that J&K is India's integral part, as had it been so easy then they could have implemented GST directly on J&K, and it is ample proof that J&K is not India and India is not J&K, nor is J&K like any other state of India". He also read out the provisional GST registration numbers of various businesses owned by Rana and his family.

To this, an infuriated Ansari said, "I can lynch you here".

Ali Mohammad Sagar, the senior-most member of the House, told the minister, "If you have planned to silence him (Rana), you are mistaken". I know all your shady businesses.

"You should do politics openly and not boast about moral high grounds", he told the NC members, who took exception to his remarks and created unruly scenes.

PDP MLA Javid Beg reacted sharply to Rashid's statement followed by BJP members demanding Rashid's suspension. The MLA also clashed with the marshal, who tried to evict him from the house on the orders of Speaker. The traders and civil society members were protesting against extension of GST in the State.

He said the CC has called for Valley-wide shutdown tomorrow against police highhandedness. They (government) should not do it (implement GST in its present form). "Unless the grave apprehensions and serious concerns raised by the JKCC on GST are addressed, any attempt to implement the law will be met with stiff resistance by the separatist leadership and people", he added.
