Srinagar: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today lambasted the Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Shah Geelani for criticizing his father and National Conference President Farooq Abdullah for his plain speaking on Kashmir.
Omar questioned Geelani if he has courage to react to Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s repeated statements that “azadi was not an option for Kashmir”.
“Can Geelani show me his reaction to the Pakistan PM who has recently repeated several times that Azadi is not an option for Kashmir”, Omar , working president of National Conference, asked.
“Hypocrisy is a Geelani trait”, Omar wrote on micro blog.
Geelani had denounced the remarks of Farooq that “Azadi is no option”.
“These power hungry politicians always played deceit. These irresponsible and short-sighted people have always served the interests of their masters. They are barefaced, follow their treacherous politics and never feel ashamed for their absurd statements,” Geelani had said in a statement issued yesterday. (Kashmir Wire )
