Omar Calls Mehbooba “ incompetent”

J K News Today

Jammu, January 9  Former Chief Minister  Omar Abdullah  launched a scathing attack on her successor Mehbooba Mufti  and called her “ incompetent” and “ dismal failure” , while charging her with  puncturing  the democratic institutions .

In a   raw verbal  attack on Mehbooba Mufti , in which he sought to sow a disconnect between her  and her party lawmakers as also the ally BJP, Omar Abdullah  called her “ incompetent to perform her constitutional duties” and unable to govern the state.

Omar  came to the Legislative Assembly  for the first time since the budget session  opened with  Governor N N Vohra’s  address  to the joint session of the  State legislature on January 2, was all fire and brimstone against the government . His target was Mehbooba Mufti  all the time dur9ng his speech.

He took on her  by referring to Governor’s speech on Monday   wherein he had  charged her government  not taking adequate measures to move forward . “ Governor Sahab made these remarks  when he felt free to air his views,” and he  added : “ What Governor Sahab said  in his official address to mark the beginning  of the budget session was a read out from speech scripted by your government..’

In his typical style, Omar took on the Mehbooba Mufti government  by picking one point after another in a serial manner .

Comparing the three years of the Mehbooba Mufti Government with the  three years  since 2002  when her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed  was Chief Minister of the State , Omar Abdullah said “ a lot was done.” He also complimented  Ghulam Nabi Azad  for having created new districts  ( he had set up eight new districts taking the number of districts from 14 to 22)  and set up many institutions  during his two and a half year tenure of  Chief Ministership.”

“ You have wasted  three years. There is nothing you an show on the ground” he said  and touched  her political  raw nerve when he accused of her shying away from holding the Anantnag parliamentary by-poll under the ruse that the conditions were not conducive .  “ Separatists had always sought disruption of the polls, but polls were never cancelled under their pressure since 1996,” he reminded her.

Omar who also is working president of his party National Conference  was quite aggressive when he charged the Chief Minister with having no intention to hold the Panchayat polls. “ We know, it for certain that you don’t want Panchayat polls, you have made the announcement out of some compulsion and we are not sure whether you would be actually holding ( Panchayat ) polls.”

He said that “not only the opposition, but also your ( Mehbooba Mufti)  allies and your own party men were not happy with  your performance . You are a dismal failure.”

National Conference leader also said that the  BJP would have burnt Chief Minister’s effigies all across the country , had they been not in the alliance government . “ They are disappointed by your performance.”
