Omar hits back at Mirwaiz
‘I Prefer To Ignore His Hypocrisy, Double-Standards’
Jammu, July 30: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that he preferred to ignore the “hypocrisy” of Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s politics and his “double standards”.
“There is so much I could tell the Mirwaiz about the hypocrisy of his politics and double standards but I prefer to ignore him,” Omar wrote in response to a comment from one of his 39,902 followers on micro-blogging networking site Twitter.
On Friday, both the factions of Hurriyat Conference termed the Chief Minister as representative of “military and imperialism” and asked him to leave power politics and then talk about representing Kashmiris.
One of his followers posted, “Between Pulpit-Politics, sermons, statements and hartals - what has Hurriyat achieved in 20 years? Are it’s leaders self-sacrificing?
Omar had objected to Pakistan talking to separatist leaders only and ignoring the mainstream politicians from the state. “There is nothing wrong in Pakistan talking to separatists. The two sides have been talking in the past also but Pakistan cannot ignore the mainstream parties as separatists are not the only leaders in Jammu and Kashmir.
In fact we have contested the polls and have representative character,” he had said.
MOCKS AT PDP
Meanwhile, Omar on Saturday made a veiled attack on his bete-noire PDP for its oft-repeated criticism over “shrinking political space in Jammu and Kashmir.”
“Glad to see those who had accused me of shrinking political space using some of that today in Srinagar,” Omar wrote on mirco-blogging site Twitter while referring to PDP-sponsored Panchayat conference in Srinagar.
In another post on twitter, Omar wrote: “We can debate/dispute the numbers (Panchayat members) but what's important is that political parties are comfortable organising public meetings in Srinagar.”
