OMAR ABDULLAH SPEAKS
Vice President and former chief minister of the National Conference Omar Abdullah is currently under fire from different quarters for different reasons.
His party came out with a statement recently when chief minister of Chhattisgarh alleged that Omar Abdullah bought his freedom from the jail through his brother in law Sachin Pilot and the current Rajasthan crisis has a lot to do with it.
The National Conference has described the assertion of Chhattisgarh CM about the release of Omar Abdullah as baseless, far from truth and defamatory.
The National Conference even claimed that they will move to court against Chhattisgarh CM. Whatever allegation and counter allegation fact remains that Omar Abdullah was released soon after his father was released while other former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti is still under detention.
Omar Abdullah has been accused of hiding behind Facebook wall and twitter by BJP leaders and has been accused of playing soft separatist politics for their power game.
Omar Abdullah recently came under attack from his followers on twitter when he tried to caution people of Kashmir on their visible signs of support to China in the current LAC standoff in Ladakh.
Since their release both Farooq Abdullah and his son Omar Abdullah are being seen with an eye of suspicion because of their release and the low profile they have maintained post their release. They have maintained silence on the crucial issues in Jammu and Kashmir.
In this back National Conference and Omar Abdullah feel that they are being pushed to the margins of Kashmir politics and have started talking about the crucial issues like restoration of statehood in Jammu and Kashmir.
