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,.
