The issue of Indo-Pak NSA level talks was trending on social networking sites with former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah drawing parallel with a tennis match having entered into a “tie- breaker” which will be completed “under lights”.
As soon as External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj finished her press conference on National Security Advisor- level talks between India and Pakistan, Omar tweeted, “With that return of the Aziz lob by Ms Swaraj this match has gone in to a tie-breaker & will now be played under lights.”
Swaraj had told reporters that Pakistan had time only till tonight to give a categorical assurance that it would not discuss Kashmir issue and rope in separatists from Kashmir.
The tweet of Omar was taken sportingly by his followers and of them said, “Can we call it sudden death.”
A bank manager, who seemed to be a cricket fan, said “may be we need Duvkwoth Lewis method (Duckworth-Lewis method) given the complexity of the issue ??”
One Jagdish with handle nativerooster said, “Pakistan is infamous for ball tampering and now we will see who has real balls ??”
Another twitterati said, “the govt seems to have been un prepared for the Pak googlies to sabotage thebtalks (sic)”.
