Omar Abdullah: Blood is the price Kashmir is paying for PDP-BJP govt
After five civilians were killed along with five militants on Sunday, former J&K CM Omar Abdullah said that Kashmiris were paying with blood for the PDP and BJP government to remain partners in crime
After five civilians were killed along with five militants in Shopian and Kulgam districts of southern Kashmir on Sunday morning, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has slammed Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, saying that Kashmiris were paying with blood for her to remain CM and for “PDP & BJP to remain ‘partners in crime’.”
The National Conference leader on Monday lambasted Mufti over her "hollow" tweet on recent killings, and said that her brother Tassaduq Mufti was more honest than her in voicing opinion on the situation.
Abdullah was referring to the People's Democratic Party (PDP) leader and Culture Minister of the state, Tassaduq Mufti's remarks during an interview with a national daily. In the interview he had expressed a strong objection to the BJP-PDP alliance, stating that both the parties had ended up being partners in a crime (for which) an entire generation of Kashmiris might have to pay with their blood.
Just providing jobs and ensuring development is not the solution that will end “violence and alienation” in Kashmir, Abdullah said in an earlier tweet on Sunday, referring to the killing in an encounter of an assistant professor who allegedly had joined terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen a day before he was killed on Sunday.
Continuing his attack on the Chief Minister, in another tweet Abdullah asked if the deceased civilians' would get justice or not. "One question though, as the state Home Minister & head of the Unified Command you have admitted these boys are "innocent civilians'' so who will be charged & hanged for their cold blooded murder? Or should I be asking @HMOIndia this question?" read the tweet.
