Jammu: Criticising chief minister Mehbooba Mufti for her “silence in the house” over the civilian killing in southern Kashmir, leader of opposition, Omar Abdullah, on Wednesday slammed the government for “not being serious”.
“Veeri sahab has given the statement on behalf of the government but we do not accept it,” Omar told the lower house of J&K Legislature. “We get only to know from newspapers that chief minister is saddened by killings. She should have expressed same sadness and anguish in house but she did not.”
“I am leaving so are my colleagues doing,” he said. “If CM would have issued a statement by herself in house over the killing, we would have accepted that the government is serious but it has shown us that it is not.”
Later, Omar led second walk-out of the opposition from the house.
Only Er Rasheed, Langate MLA, remained present in the house from opposition side along with Pawan Gupta.
While Omar led the walk-out, chief minister Mehbooba Mufti entered the house.
BJP state president, Sat Sharma, was seen pleading with Omar and his colleagues to sit back as CM had come to house.
