As per news agency KNO addressing party workers in Achabal, Khanabal and Bijbehara area in Anantnag, the former Chief Minister said that the government must fix the rate of lease and give first right of refusal to lease holders and it they refuse to take it, then they can give it others.

He said it seems the government just wants to snatch properties from lease holders who have invested on it so as to accommodate non-locals.

“If LG administration will fix lease rates and existing lease holders will refuse to take it, then we won’t have any objection but it seems the government has other desires,” he said.

“NC always wants that India must have good relationships with neighbouring countries but it is not only their duty to keep good relations as the other country must be willing too. It is not only the duty of India alone, rather Pakistan must clear a few concerns of India which they have, so as to keep good relations,” Omar said.

He said that BJP played a politics of deceit by claiming on 5 August 2019 that they are going to bring J&K at par with the rest of the country. Now they must answer that if they brought J&K at par, then why PSA is only in J&K.

“PSA has been kept only to harass people here and during the NC government I have amended it and weakened it. Now we are going to repeal what is wrong in it,” he said.
