A social activist, Sukesh Khajuria, has sought the disqualification of Farooq Abdullah from the Lok Sabha for allegedly making “seditious” remarks pertaining to Kashmir.

Khajuria has written a letter to Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to expedite the complaint against Abdullah which he made earlier. Earlier, the speaker had referred the complaint to the Committee on Petitions of Parliament, Khajuria said.

Khajuria urged the speaker that since it was an urgent and important matter, it should be taken up on a priority basis and action initiated against Abdullah as the term of the 16th Lok Sabha was nearing completion.

Khajuria had filed the complaint on the basis of news reports in which Abdullah had reportedly said that Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) now belongs to Pakistan while the other side belongs to India.
