Omar To Northern Army Command Chief: What Great Year?


National Conference Vice President and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday lashed out at the army’s Northern Command Chief Lt General Ranbir Singh, on his “great year for security forces” remark.

Taking to social networking site Twitter, Omar wrote: “I beg to differ, a great year would be one in which no young man would join militancy, no terrorists would be killed & no security personnel would lose their lives in encounters. The compulsion of killing militants/terrorists shouldn’t be treated as a cause for celebration.”

Omar was responding to the remarks of Northern Army Command chief Lt Gen Ranbir Singh in which he said that 2018 has been a great year for the forces as more than 250 militants were killed, 54 were arrested and four surrendered to the forces.
