Domicile Order: Will Talk Once Pandemic Halts, Says Omar


Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Vice President Omar Abdullah on Saturday said he will only open up on how he felt about August 5, 2019, once the ongoing crisis of coronavirus is over.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Omar wrote: “Delhi made a mistake notifying the domicile rules during this time of crisis & I made a mistake getting sucked into this debate at a time when it’s wrong to let politics distract from the #COVID19 fight. I haven’t spoken my mind about 5/8/2019 yet but I will when this is over.”

“For the time being, regardless of the provocation, I’ll focus on the battle at hand. Twitter is anyway the wrong place to talk about what I feel about 5/8/2019 until I’m able to find a platform for a detailed explaination of thoughts/feelings/plans,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

“It’s high time the people of J&K get to decide the laws that will govern them rather than being subjected to the whims & fancies of the centre where orders are issued in the morning & changes to the same order issued in the evening. Restore statehood, conduct elections.” Omar tweeted.
