Ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Saturday blamed NC working president and former Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah for “trying to set state on fire by making allegations and completely wrong inferences” about setting up of Sainik colony in Kashmir.

“This makes it clear that how former Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah is trying to set state a fire by making baseless allegations and completely wrong inferences,” government spokesperson and minister for education Naeem Akhtar told KNS.

“When the government has made clear it amply clear that no such land is allotted or is planning to allot, why should Omar Abdullah impute such motives as very emotive issues and try to disrupt the peace and process in the state,” Akhtar said.

Omar Abdullah addressed a party workers meet in North Kashmir's Baramulla on Saturday.

Accusing NC of “damaging the state”, Akhtar said that the party has already done “tremendous damage” through its negative policies and at a time when there is a consensus in the country on the special status of the state.

“Omar is trying to create fear psychosis among the people. PDP-BJP government is not a government led by Omar Abdullah who had declared that he will remove AFSPA during his tenure and kept changing the timetable till eternity,” he said.

“Omar Abdullah is demanding to return the power projects which his family has gifted to NHPC,” he said.

National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah on Saturday said the State Government’s proposal to go ahead with allocating hundreds of kanals of land in the Valley for a proposed ‘Sainik Colony’ could be a ruse to settle non-State-subjects in Kashmir and hence bypass Article 370.
