Omar questions what Mehbooba got from Centre

New Delhi:Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said the people of state have a right to know what PDP got from the Centre that prompted it to form government in alliance with BJP after three months bargaining and theatrical posturing.

“Mehbooba Mufti needs to come clean on her meeting with the Prime Minister and what transpired between the two over the so-called confidence building measures that PDP alleged to have sought from the Central Government but a request the BJP denies having received at all”, Omar said while addressing workers rally here in Rajouri district today.

Omar posed several direct questions to the new Chief Minister, saying she will have to explain to the people what PDP got from the Centre or the Prime Minister after three-month dilly dallying in forming the government.

“She needs to respond to the statement of BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav also who is on record having stated that Mehbooba Mufti didn’t ask for anything from the Prime Minister except his blessings,” he added.

He claimed that Mehbooba Mufti was asked either to form the government or else leave the turf, as BJP was determined to form the government with 20 PDP MLAs who were ready to choose another leader for the PDP legislature party.

“This caused panic in the Mufti camp, who fearing dismemberment of PDP chose to form the government out of fear and based on a deep sense of insecurity,” he said.
