No need to anticipate trouble in JK ahead of R-Day: Omar
Jammu, Jan 11: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said there was no need to anticipate any kind of trouble in the state ahead of the Republic day. "There are no reports of any sort of trouble either by militants or (concerning) law and order to be anticipated in the state," he said. "But as a routine, every state gets warning by the Union Home Ministry before the Republic Day the and Independent Day. "In this context, the state must have also received some warning," Omar told reporters here.
"Every year we are getting such type of information (by the MHA) but every year our attempt is to prove it wrong," he said.
Asked whether he would campaign for the Congress in the Uttar Pradesh assembly election, he said there was no such invitation from the party yet. "There is no such thing. If there is any such thing, I will definitely go and campaign."
On PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti describing his government as a "headless chicken", Omar said "these things neither irritate me nor prick me."
