Asserting that he fully supports the two-flag order, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday lashed out at incumbent CM Mufti Muhammad Sayeed for “not defending” the state’s dignity from the ‘nefarious plans of allies’.

“If Mufti Syed can’t defend the state’s dignity & flag from the nefarious plans of his allies he should step down & find someone who can,” Omar’s tweets said.

“Here’s what I will say- so long as J&K is a part of India the two flags will continue to fly and we’ll take pride in it,” he added.

“Why is only J&K expected to respect the terms of accession while the rest of the country can disregard them with impunity?” he said in a series of tweets.

A two-judge bench Friday stayed its earlier order allowing the state government to use both the tricolour as well as the state flags on official buildings and vehicles.
