‘Situation in Kashmir not normal’, Omar proves with arguments


National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has said that the situation in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir is not normal as claimed by the Modi-led Indian regime, and argued that had it been normal, elections would have been held in the territory, so far.

According to Kashmir Media Service, talking to reporters in Kupwara, he said, “If the situation is normal, why are elections not held? What is the excuse? Only yesterday, a police officer was shot at in broad day light in Srinagar. Now, we heard that something has happened in Pulwama.”

“In Rajouri, an area which we had cleared of mili-tancy, every week an incident or encounter takes place there. If this is normal situation, then be it,” he said.

Asked about People’s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD) constituents hitting out at each other, Abdullah said he has not uttered a word against anyone. “I have not said anything. I have not targeted any of my friends, despite the fact that for the past several months we have been targeted. But this is also right that for the first time I have not tried to stop my colleague,” he said.

In an apparent reference to PDP leaders’ criticising the National Conference at a party event last week, Abdullah said there was plenty his party can talk about if it were about raking up the past.
