JAMMU, Jan 10: Leader of Opposition Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that the PDP-BJP government in Jammu & Kashmir had no right to remain in chair, if they felt that civilian killings were not an issue to be discussed in the House.
“If the government thinks that civilian killing is not an issue then I feel that this government has no right to remain in chair,” Omar told reporters outside the Legislative Assembly.
He said, “In my government when such incidents happened only I knew how I used to feel but I never said that it was not an issue.”
The former Chief Minister said that the opposition was expecting the Chief Minister to say a few words on the civilian killings in the House as she is also the chairperson of the Unified Command.
“She came to the House only when I made a point but by that time it was too late,” said Omar, adding that he would boycott Chief Minister’s speech on Motion of Thanks on Governor’s Address in the House.
“This is the second week of this year and you can see number of civilians killed and also the security forces,” he said. On a question related to BJP’s assertion that anybody picking up the gun would meet the same fate, Omar asked, “Was the man, killed on Tuesday, carrying a gun? Was he a terrorist?”
“The minister has himself admitted in the House that the civilian killed in the firing was innocent,” he added and said he suffered a bullet injury in his neck, what did it indicates, he asked.
“There is no normalcy restored. It has further worsened,” said the NC leader.
