J&K admin trying to panic people: Omar

National Conference Vice-President, Omar Abdullah, Wednesday claimed a section of Jammu and Kashmir administration was trying to create panic among people, scaring them with the prospect of a massive unrest in the state after August 15.

“It is surprising to say the least that instead of calming tempers and reassuring people in the valley, large sections of the administration are busy trying to scare people to expect massive unrest and trouble after 15th August,” Abdullah tweeted.

Earlier in the day, People’s Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone warned the Centre against resorting to any adventurism in the state.

“That Kashmir can be internationally newsy is something that the present dispensation in Delhi needs to understand. Any intention of adventurism and experimentation with the basic ideological fundamentals can be disastrous. Hope better sense prevails,” Lone tweeted. He was apparently referring to US President Donald Trump’s offer to mediate between India and Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.
