Omar’s threat a drama: PDP

‘Ganaie report deliberately kept secret’

SRINAGAR: Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday termed chief minister Omar Abdullah’s reported threat to resign over the issue of new administrative units as  ‘a hollow threat and a drama to impress people by the non-existent heroism’.

“If he (Omar) had moral courage, he had much better reasons to resign earlier,” said chief spokesman PDP Naeem Akhtar, adding that Omar could have resigned at the time of execution of Afzal Guru.

“In 2010 there were more than 120 people killed by his own forces on valley streets, at the time of Shopian and when the case of Haji Yusuf’s killing was surfaced, Omar didn’t resign,” said Naeem.

The PDP spokesman added further Omar holds nothing to show as his achievements to the people and it is like sticking to a straw by a drowning man. “They know that there end is near and in this desperation, they are trying to shake the foundations of the state.”

Akhtar stated further that NC and Congress was at present through the issue of new administrative units, trying to show to their respective constituencies that they are their saviors and champions.

However, Akhtar stated that PDP favoured creation of new administrative units in the state, keeping in view the topographic and climatic conditions. “We are against the political gains that Congress and NC is trying to get through the issue. They cannot buy polls by indulging into the thoughtless exercises.”

Demanding that the Mushtaq Ganaie report must be made public so that people could give their opinions about the issue, PDP accused that the report was being kept as secret with the deliberate attempt.
