The National Conference (NC) and the Congress today staged protest outside the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly against “innocent killings” in the state.

The protesting MLAs carried placards saying "stop innocent killings". 

The state government has convened a special session on Saturday to discuss the Goods and Services Tax (GST) implementation which needs a constitutional amendment by the legislature so that the new tax regime is adopted in the state. 

Meanwhile, groups of traders, manufacturers and other businessmen staged a sit-in in the city's Lal Chowk area against the GST.
