National Conference leader Omar Abdullah welcomed Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday for her first tweet, three years after joining the microblogging site.

She took to Twitter on Sunday to share a short promotional film of the state’s tourism department.

Today, Omar tweeted, “25,000 followers later @MehboobaMufti finally broke her silence on twitter with a tourism promotion video. Welcome to Twitter CM Sahiba.”

The five-minute film titled Warmest Place on Earth, which aims to counter the negative perception about the Valley, has drawn over 1.6 million views in less than 48 hours after its release.

The opposition leader, had hit out at the chief minister yesterday for terming the situation in Kashmir peaceful.

“There is something disconcerting about the CM claiming this just days after her minister survived an attack that killed 3 people!,” Omar had tweeted.

He was reacting to a news report which quoted Mehbooba saying that the situation in Kashmir was peaceful and it was the media which was creating negative perception about the Valley.
