As the death toll in the on-going cross border firing reaching seven with many injured on this side of LoC and with Pakistan claiming two civilians dead on its side, former J&K CM Omar Abdullah Sunday questioned the “silence” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over ceasefire violations terming it as “hurtful”.

“6 inc. (including) a woman & 12 yr (year) old boy are dead sir. They’re part of your #TeamIndia. As captain of the team your silence is hurtful sir @PMOIndia,” tech savvy Omar wrote on micro blogging site, Twitter.

The NC working president earlier had said that he was “sorry” to see that the Prime Minister “could not tweet a condolence message after people were killed in the shelling”.

“So sorry to see that my PM, who remembers to tweet for every obscure birthday & National Day can’t tweet a condolence for the dead today,” he said.

Omar added, “So far my father is the only senior person to visit this area in Poonch to boost morale. High time Ministers of Center & State visit now.”

Lashed out at Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh, Omar said, “he was heaping insult on injury.”

“Someone please get him to keep quiet. He’s heaping insult on injury now,” Omar said in another tweet after Singh had reportedly said, “people living along borders now feel much more secure than ever before.”
