National Conference working president Omar Abdullah on Saturday held chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed responsible for “hate attacks” in the state, adding that the CM had “bartered everything” to save his chair.
Omar referred to the recent incidents of violence against alleged cattle smugglers in the state and said, “Our chief minister (Sayeed) has bartered everything to save his chair. The chief minister is directly responsible for the attacks which have taken place in Rajouri, Udhampur or elsewhere in the state.”
The former chief minister spoke to reporters after paying tributes to his grandfather and National Conference founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah on his 110th birth anniversary at Naseem Bagh in Hazratbal.
Omar said the National Conference had extended support to PDP patron Sayeed for forming the government in the wake of the hung assembly to keep such elements out of the state.
“When the election results were declared, National Conference extended a hand of friendship towards Mufti Mohamamd Sayeed with the intention of keeping such forces out of the state who only want to set the state on fire.
“We had an apprehension that allowing the BJP and particularly the RSS into the state would be fraught with dangers. Unfortunately, our apprehensions have been proved correct in the nine months (of PDP-BJP government),” he said.
Omar said while large scale arrests were being made in Kashmir, “these people (RSS) are holding armed rallies in Jammu and no one says anything”.
