Amid flood panic, Omar seeks Mufti’s reassurance on twitter

KL Report


At the time when incessant rainfall has triggered flood panic in valley, the former chief minister in his vintage style hit the twitter to ask chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to reassure people about flood situation.

“The poor residents of Srinagar must be absolutely terrified. Time for the authorities to reassure them,” he tweeted. “From all the info I’ve been able to gather we are still a few feet below the danger mark but people are scared and rumours flying.”

With heavy rainfall disrupting normal life in Srinagar, State Irrigation and Flood Control Minister Abdul Majid Paddar assured that his government is prepared to handle any situation in the eventuality of floods.

“The level of the water is still below the danger mark,” Paddar said. “Our Chief Minister is going there to look into the situation. If something happens then we are prepared.”

“Now is the time for the CM to use Radio Kashmir and FM to address people to reassure them of the factual position and dispel rumours,” Omar further tweeted.

Pertinently, during last year’s September flood, Omar—the then chief minister of state—was castigated over his “delayed” response to combat the flood fury.


  1. Omar Abdullah has gone crazy and tries to act smart.he needs to pack his bags and leave Kashmiris has been his performance for the previous six years and in particular during previous floods does not need any deliberations or any type of posts.
