National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Tuesday took a swipe at Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for not taking part in the crucial meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to review the volatile situation in Kashmir.
However, a senior official in Jammu and Kashmir clarified that since it was a briefing by central ministers on the Kashmir situation, Mehbooba had no role in it. On the micro-blogging site Twitter, Omar criticised Mehbooba, who heads the PDP-BJP government in the state, for leaving the meeting unrepresented by the state.
“I understand if @MehboobaMufti didn’t leave the state to attend but why not by video-conference? State unrepresented. “We set up video links for all sorts of meaningless things but here where it matters to have @MehboobaMufti involved in the process-nothing,” the former chief minister tweeted.
