Omar unhappy with PM Modi’s silence on Kashmir unrest, slams BJP-PDP govt

Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Sunday expressed unhappiness over Prime Minister Narendra Modi not mentioning unrest in the valley in his monthly radio address "Mann Ki Baat" and slammed the BJP-PDP government for giving contradictory statements over the killing of Burhan Wani.

"How I wish my Prime Minister had found a few reassuring words for my state which have seen almost 50 deaths & countless injured," Abdullah, who is also working president of the National Conference, said in a tweet.

Displeased with the differing statements from the leaders of the coalition, Omar observed that there was “confusion” for which the people of Jammu and Kashmir are suffering.

"The CM (Mehbooba Mufti) rewards the personnel involved in this encounter and the Deputy CM calls it an accident.Confusion abounds and people suffer," he tweeted.
