Sainik colony row: Mehbooba accuses Omar Abdullah of spreading ‘false’ information

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Monday attacked the main Opposition party, National Conference and its working president Omar Abdullah for spreading “false” information among the people.

“Omar Abdullah himself was the chief minister of the state, he knows that neither a chief minister nor a prime minister of the country can dilute the special status of Jammu and Kashmir,” Mehbooba said.

“Since Omar Abdullah is not a common man but has been a chief minister, I hope that Omar does not repeat his mistake today in which he has referred to some papers (about Sainik Colony),” Mehbooba said.

The chief minister was referring to a picture posted by Omar Abdullah on Twitter in which some policemen were beating a youth, and the picture was purportedly taken during the 2010 agitation.

“Omar Abdullah had recently posted a picture on Twitter which showed police men beating someone, but that picture was of 2010 when he was the chief minister,” Mehbooba said.

On her father, late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed’s decision to ally with BJP, she said that Mufti took a difficult decision not for damaging the identity of the state but for safeguarding the identity of Jammu and Kashmir.

On NEET controvery, Mehbooba said that Supreme Court has observed that there will be no interference in the special status of the state.
