Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah devoted much of his speech on the Kashmir unrest of 2016 by raising questions on the killing of Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen Commander Burhan Wani and sought to substantiate his arguments with the innate contradictions after his death.
Omar who had opened the discussion on the Kashmir unrest , which he squarely blamed on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti , played on the contradictions within the government.
“ Chief Minister said that had she known that Burhan was trapped in the hideout, he could have been given a second chance , Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh said it was an accidental killing, Finance Minister Haseeb Drabu said it was a fake encounter,” Omar recalled the statements made by the government ministers immediately after the death of Burhan Wani . He raised a question, “ we all want to know the truth.”
Omar who during the unrest picked up holes in the government’s handling of the situation and never blamed the stone throwing protests to the trouble , today targeted Mehbooba Mufti with a barrage of arguments in the Assembly. He repeated the often-voiced logic, “ If I was responsible for the killings in 2010 ( 120 youth were killed that year) , why Mehbooba Mufti should not be held responsible for what happened in 2016. “ These are double standards”, he said while making a case against her and PDP, the main rival of National Conference in the Kashmir Valley.
It was sort of a reply to Mehbooba who on Monday had held National Conference responsible for the militancy and all the trouble in Kashmir from the very beginning.
