Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that BJP Chief Amit Shah should first look at states ruled by BJP Chief Ministers before pontificating and giving unsolicited sermons elsewhere. “The State and people of J&K don’t need lessons from Shah. He should first look at politics of succession and entitlement within BJP before giving sermons to anyone else,” the NC Working President said.
Pertinently, BJP Game Changer-Amit Shah on Monday said that he wants see “J&K free of Abdullahs and Muftis.”
Omar Abdullah also questioned Shah’s statement on the State Government’s response to the migration crisis of citizens from the Line of Control and International Border.
“The State Government has always been there to take care of our people who suffer from ceasefire violations and senior ministers from the State Government, including the Minister of State for Home, have repeatedly visited these camps to inquire about the welfare of the people there. The State Government has spoken up for the right to safety and normality for these people and will continue to do whatever is necessary for their welfare. We are not in need of lessons from anyone else,” Omar Abdullah said.
The NC Working President also said that he wondered what five Union Ministers from New Delhi did about the humanitarian issue of displaced border inhabitants on their official visits to the State.
“How many of these Union Ministers actually visited the areas along the border and Line of Control where people have been displaced because of ceasefire violations? There is a mismatch between what Amit Shah is saying and the approach of the Central Government and its Union Ministers towards those displaced by these ceasefire violations. As far as the State Government is concerned, we will continue to extend all possible help and support to the displaced citizens,” the NC Working President added.
