Deflation of all promises belies claims of Modi govt: Omar


Reiterating his commitment for restoration of the special status enjoyed by Jammu and Kashmir, Na-tional Conference vice president Omar Abdullah criticised Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for “the uni-lateral decisions” of August 5, 2019, pointing out that all the projected promises deflated and the ground situation belied the claims of the Narendra Modi led Indian government.

Abdullah addressing a public meeting at Dak Bungalow Bhaderwah, Doda district of Jammu re-gion on the penultimate day of his eight-day tour of Chenab valley said that the soaring unemployment rate, high inflation, and administrative inertia proved the claims of the Government of India hol-low.

“Far from bringing peace and development to the region, the days and months that followed the unilateral and unconstitutional decisions of 5 Au-gust 2019 saw the return of targeted killings, return of bunkers, political instability, insecurity and esca-lation of violence.

Today forces are being stationed in marriage halls, forces imprint has increased on ground. Today Srinagar presents a garrison-like look,” he said.—KMS
