Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday attacked Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, saying her government had “misplaced” priorities and was “shamelessly” trying to convey message of normalcy in the state hit by violence.
Referring to the 1931 Martyrs Day commemoration function here, Omar wrote on Twitter, “Brazen shamelessness of the @MehboobaMufti #BJPDP Govt, ferrying people in police buses to state function to convey normalcy has returned”.
The former chief minister said more than 30 people have died and all Mehbooba and her party want to do is put up party flags and get police to ferry people to her function.
Misplaced priorities that put theatrics and falsified public participation over and above the ground realities so as to befool bosses in Delhi, Omar charged.
The NC working president said the government should have rather focused on restoring calm in the Valley.
“Shameless” Government should have been focused on restoring calm and on helping our doctors who are struggling to treat 1200+ injured people, he said.
Omar also requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to send specialist doctors to the Valley for treating the injured.
“Hon (Honourable) @narendramodi ji. After Kerala fire you carried a plane load of burn specialists with you. Please send eye/trauma specialists to Kashmir,” he said.
The NC leader said it was time to reach out to the Valley with a healing touch. The injured include security forces persons and young boys who risk losing their sight forever.
This is the time to reach out with a healing touch, he said.
Omar said the fact that the youngsters have been injured in protests against security forces should not stop the government from giving them best treatment.
“Please don’t let the fact that these youngsters people have been injured in protests stop us from giving the best care possible. Thank you jenab,” he said.
