This was bound to happen: Omar
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu, Nov 25: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said the incident of roughing up chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) in Chandigarh was “people’s reaction to the progammes and policies” being followed by the conglomerate.
“I have no take on this incident. It is the reaction of people to their policies and programmes and it is bound to happen. I don’t condone it. It is a matter of ideas and ideologies. We are very proud to our democracy which has always given the liberty to the people of different shades of opinions to express themselves,” Omar reacted to a question regarding attack on Mirwaiz in Chandigarh.
Omar, who was fielding media queries on the sidelines of a function at Jammu University here, said that if he needs to say something to Hurriyat leaders, he would say in person.
“I am not going to use media to send a message to the members of Hurriyat Conference. If I have to say something, I would say them in person,” he said.
On being asked about criticism over recently approved rehabilitation policy for ex-militants who crossed over to Pakistan Administered Kashmir (PAK) and Pakistan, the CM said, “There is no hullabaloo over it and reports about criticism have been generated by the media.”
Omar remarked, “Some political groups are trying to get political mileage out of it and all possible attempts are being made to create controversy over the policy. There is nothing in the policy that would put the nation on risk. A lot of work has been done on this policy and all its pros and cons had been discussed with the Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram.”
Chief Minister hoped that the policy would benefit the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
