Srinagar: Opposition National Conference leader and former chief minister, Omar Abdullah on Thursday questioned the calling of an all-party meet by chief minister, Mehbooba Mufti following her ally, Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) rejection of her demand for Ramazan truce in Kashmir.
BJP spokesperson for J&K, Sunil Sethi has reportedly said that his party is in “complete disagreement” to consider a unilateral ceasefire during the month of Ramazan.
“We are in complete disagreement and the chief minister cannot pressure us on this. It is not going to do any good. The Army’s operations to neutralize militants have been successful. We cannot appeal to the Centre to go down on its knees. Talks happen when both parties are on equal ground,” Sethi was quoted by New Delhi based media organization.
“What was the point of @MehboobaMufti calling an all party meeting to build a consensus around initiatives in Kashmir when her ally in the Govt doesn’t agree with her! Yet she will shamelessly cling to power because that’s all that matters to her,” Omar tweeted.
