Srinagar,  October  10  (JKNT)   For the first  time in recent months former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah   has come out against militants following the terror attack on Entrepreneurship  Development    Institute ( EDI) building   in the suburbs of Srinagar  early  Mondaymorning in which one army jawan has been injured.

Intermittent  gun fight was in progress, when Omar Abdullah tweeted , “ All the EDI ever did was to train young Kashmiri boys and girls to stand on their own feet and not seek government jobs. Militants don’t like that!” .

Ever since the PDP-BJP government came to power  in March last year and  in its   sequel in April this year , Omar has been  a chronic critic of the two ruling alliance partners and always avoided making any critical remarks against the militants .

Realising that this  was for a second  time that the militants had attacked the building, which they had first targeted in February this year in which   three para commandos and  four  militants  were killed,, Omar added:

“No wonder for the second time this year they have attacked the institute.They want young Kashmiris to be subservient and bitter not self-reliant,.
