Rajnath Singh that no amount of urgency could justify Sayeed’s action

New Delhi: The BJP-led government has found itself in a tight spot once again, as opposition parties cornered it in both house of the parliament on the latest reports of J&K Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed flushing a  toilet without keeping the Centre in loop.

Sayeed, who heads the PDP-BJP coalition government in J&K had answered nature’s call at a golf course washroom in Jammu Monday morning and flushed the toilet thereafter.

Sayeed has allegedly flushed the toilet without notifying New Delhi and coalition partner BJP.

“What is going on in Jammu & Kashmir. Your chief minister is taking the centre for granted,” Congress party leader Mallikarjun Kharge said in the Lok Sabha. “The Jammu and Kashmir government must have consulted the prime minister on this. You have a coalition government with the PDP.”

In the Rajya Sabha, Leader of Opposition and former J&K chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad expressed utter shock and disbelief over the flushgate.

“I just can’t comprehend how a chief minister of J&K can think of doing it,” Azad said. “I am quite aware of how things work and have served as chief minister of the state. BJP can’t cite ignorance on the issue and endanger country’s integrity. This amounts to seeking independence.”

Both house were adjourned for one hour after opposition members took to the well of the house over the issue.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh told the house that he has sought a report from the state government over the flushgate.

“The state government has said that it was an emergency and the chief minister couldn’t have waited, but we are not satisfied with the reply and are seeking further clarification,” Singh said amid noises from opposition benches in the Lok Sabha.

Singh also informed the house that the prime minister shared the outrage of the nation on the issue.

Outside of the parliament, former home minister P Chidambaram told the media that the BJP was risking the country’s integrity by allowing defiance.

“We have also handled J&K with an ally during our rule, and I cannot think of even one instance, when our chief minister Omar Abdullah, had even passed wind without approval from the Home ministry,” Chidambaram said.

“I clearly remember at times I would call him to tell he could go for a poo.”

Not to be pacifiSTILLed by the government’s response in the parliament, major television soups kept flashing images of the golf course toilet that Sayeed had reportedly used.

The state BJP president Jugal Kishore Sharma told media in Jammu that there was no consensus on the issue of flushing and even the CMP reached by two parties do not figure the issue.

Enraged BJP activists staged protest demonstrations in Jammu burning effigies of Sayeed and urged party leadership to dismantle any washrooms that Sayeed could potentially use to “show defiance.”
