The former CM dared the Union minister to hold similar meetings on Diwali in Uttar Pradesh and Ganesh Chaturthi in Maharashtra.

“He would never do this on Diwali in UP or on Ganesh Chaturthi in Maharashtra. Very insensitive but then we’ve come to expect no better from this BJP Government & its J&K branch,” Omar Abdullah wrote on X.

The union minister was scheduled to chair a high-level meeting for reviewing the progress of developmental projects in Jammu and Kashmir, especially the projects that come under the road transport and highways.
