Omar blackmailing New Delhi: Bazaz
New Delhi, Apr 18: President of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Forum, Pandit Bhushan Bazaz on Wednesday alleged that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is blackmailing New Delhi by raising the issue of revocation of controversial Armed Forces Special Power Act (AFSPA).
“To save his chair Omar is trying to blackmail New Delhi over AFSPA issue again, because there is a strong lobby still in the Congress, who want a rotational CM. Within the state Omar is playing AFSPA card. If he is removed as CM, tomorrow he will mislead the people that he was punished as he advocated for revocation of the draconian law,” Bazaz said in a statement.
“Omar is playing dirty politics over the AFSPA for his own interests. Revocation of Disturbed Areas Act (DAA) is in the hands of the state government. If CM is sincere he should first revoke DAA and then ask New Delhi to repeal AFSPA,” he added.
