Srinagar, October 13 ( JKNT) Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today accused PDP-BJP government of playing “ partisan politics” after the Centre announced on Thursday Indian Institute of Management ( IIM) to Jammu , and an out campus to Kashmir.
In a series of tweets , Omar , who also is the working president of the main opposition National Conference questioned , “ Jammu gets the IIT and gets the IIM also , where have all those voices that called for balanced regional development in J&K disappeared”, and peppered this with his another tweet: “ I realise that Mehbooba Mufti has had to sell out her political agenda to remain in power but I didn’t realise she’s sold her soul also!!!”.
Then he goes on to describe it as a partisan decision . Citing the announcement for AIIMS for Kashmir in 2015 , he said: When Kashmir was awarded an AIIMS Jammu agitated, successfully, for its right to be granted one as well. Why this partisanship now?” Further more, he goes on to say somewhat incoherently ,” And don’t tell me an “out campus” is good enough because if it was the IIM would have been placed in Kashmir with the out campus in Jammu ( sic)”
“This is just blatant partisan politics of the kind we have come to expect from BJPPDP. No wonder so much of the state is restive today,” Omar conclu
