National Conference Working President and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah termed Union Minister of State for Home, Kiren Rijiju’s statement in the Rajya Sabha as an “oversimplification of a complex political issue in Kashmir”.

“Such remarks emanating from New Delhi were in fact reflections of insensitive statements made by Mehbooba Mufti over the course of the last five months,” omar said while Addressing a Delegates’ Convention for Anantnag and Kulgam Districts at Dak Bunglow Anantnag today.

“Both the Central as well as the State Government should stop portraying the situation in Kashmir as either a manifestation of terrorism or one invented by slush funds. Young children didn’t get killed vying for their share of Hawala money as no amount of money can compensate the inconsolable grief and loss of losing a child – nor can it ever serve as an incentive for losing one’s life.”, Abdullah added.

Omar further added, that now Mehbooba Mufti has the audacity to go to New Delhi to seek CBMs for the people of Kashmir while tormenting the people here. “We all remember how this same elaborate charade was enacted after Late Mufti Sahab passed away and how she still sat on the CM’s chair after New Delhi refused to even acknowledge her demands, forget about accepting them,” he said

“We are still waiting for those promised CBMs like the revocation of AFSPA, talks between India and Pakistan and a political process
involving the Hurriyat Conference leaders.”
