Srinagar, Apr 8: People’s Conference chairman Sajjad Gani Lone Monday claimed that National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah had held a secret meeting in New Delhi following the 2014 Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir .
” He has till tomorrow to reveal who he met for two and a half hours and begged support for J&K chief minister’s post after the results of 2014 Assembly elections were announced,” Lone told reporters in Kupwara.
“If he doesn’t then I will reveal it myself tomorrow,” he said.
Lone castigated Omar for blaming the PDP-BJP government for NIA issuing summons to Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
The NIA was created during the rule of NC’s ally Congress at the Centre, he said, and asked why Omar and his father Farooq Abdullah had remained silent on the issue back then.
Lone said his party was mulling to move the High Court over government ban of civilian traffic on highway two days a week.
Conglomerate of militant outfits, United Jihad Council (UJC) Monday paid rich tribute to two slain militants killed in a brief gunfight in South Kashmir’s Shopian district on Saturday.
Two militants Rahil Rasheed and Bilal Ahmed were killed in an encounter in Pinjora orchards. “The killing of young buds is really painful. We salute their bravery and sacrifices,” the spokesperson said.
The outfit also criticized government of India for summoning Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to Delhi for questioning.
The spokesperson said that such tactics are being adopted to break the resolve of freedom loving leaders and people. He said such diktats only depict the frustration of New Delhi.
