The ongoing Budget Session of the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly has been witnessing ruckus with Opposition parties disturbing the proceedings of the house over different issues. Since Jammu and Kashmir was under the governor's rule from January 7 to April 4 because of the death of the then chief minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, it did not have a normal budget. Governor N.N. Vohra had passed a vote on account in the state administrative council during that period to avert a financial crisis in the state.
