Ganderbal, December 14 :

Stating that fear is looming large over Kashmir and people are feeling highly insecure, National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah Tuesday said that the present administration in J&K has miserably failed “to provide a sense of security to common people.”

Talking to reporters on the side-lines of worker’s convention in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district, Omar said there is fear everywhere and people are feeling insecure given the spate of encounters, attacks and killings. “The present administration in J&K has miserably failed to provide a sense of security to people,” he said as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO).

He said that the areas where the government led by him wiped out militancy are witnessing attacks and where bunkers were removed, fresh bunkers are being constructed. “We reduced foot-prints of security forces, but today, there are additional troops deployed. These forces are being stationed in places like marriage halls and community halls constructed by our regime,” he said.

Omar said that political rallies being organised by NC shouldn’t be linked with polls. “We want to connect with our workers just to listen to them, get their feedback and share ours as well,” he said.

He said NC wasn’t a party that speaks in one language in Jammu and in another in Kashmir. “We don’t believe in double speak,” he said. Asked whether he would contest polls from Ganderbal, Omar said when the election bugle hasn’t been blown yet, why talk about contesting polls. “I haven’t come here to cut somebody’s mandate or to give mandate to someone,” he said—(KNO)
