Srinagar: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has targeted Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for alliance with BJP after a self-claimed BJP supporter tweeted communally-inflammatory comments.
Mufti Syeds allies call for the mass murder of Muslims. Wah Mufti Sahib, wah These are Mufti Syed & @jkpdps allies. Amazing how far one can fall for power, the former Chief Minister wrote in a series of tweets.
Omar said the original tweet was deleted quietly by the account operator whose profile claims that he is followed by the Prime Minister.

The operator also tweeted several apologies, Im very very sorry again for my tweets. I promise it wont happen again. Ive put my party down. Deleting my handle.
