Lone Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) legislator Mohammed Yusuf Tarigami intervened and requested the lawmakers to set examples uniting the state instead of creating any situation that would divide it along communal lines.

Tarigami was supported by National Conference leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah who said the same statement should ideally have come from the treasury benches and not from the opposition.
