BJP allowed militancy to re-emerge in J&K: Omar

Srinagar

Former chief minister and vice-president of National Conference (NC) Omar Abdullah on Saturday reacting sharply to Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s claim that more militants were killed by security forces in the state after BJP-led NDA came to power, said actually this tells the story of how the former’s government allowed militancy and violence to re-emerge in J&K, forcing the security forces to kill more ultras.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Omar wrote: “ Actually minister sahib this tells the story of how your government allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in J&K forcing the security forces to kill more terrorists. You should be embarrassed by these statistics not be claiming them as some achievement.”

Prasad had said more militants were killed by security forces after the BJP came to power in the centre. “Number of militants killed in Jammu and Kashmir in 2012 was 72, 67 in 2013, 110 in 2014, 108 in 2015, 150 in 2016, 217 in 2017 and 75 till now in 2018. This is the story of efforts made during UPA and NDA regimes to fight militancy in J&K,” he added.
