Srinagar, November 30

National Conference Working President Omar Abdullah on Wednesday asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to accept responsibility for the killings of nearly a hundred civilians.

Omar said that Mehbooba was “majorly responsible” for the present situation that has resulted in hundreds of young boys and girls losing complete or partial eyesight.

“The same Mehbooba Mufti blamed Ghulam Nabi Azad for the 2008 unrest and held me personally responsible for the 2010 agitation. By her own standards and logic, she is primarily responsible for the current situation in the Valley and should accept responsibility rather than deflecting it”, said Omar while addressing a convention of the party’s delegates from Srinagar District at National Conference Headquarters in Srinagar.


“Our initiatives were not a partisan or power-seeking manoeuvres but genuine and constructive efforts to seek political engagement with various stakeholders in Kashmir and to highlight the pain and suffering that stands to discredit the dividends of relative peace over the past few years. Not once did we call for the dismissal of the State Government or lobbied for our own empowerment – even when people from within PDP were openly demanding that the PDP-BJP Government should resign. Had PDP not played a destructive, opportunistic and malicious role in 2010, it wouldn’t have found itself cornered between moralistic rhetoric, contradictions and U-turns today”, Omar Abdullah added.

The NC Working President said the Chief Minister’s shocking refusal to take responsibility for what’s happening in the Valley stems from her own “ political hypocrisy.”
