SRINAGAR: Opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday took a dig at Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, saying she had been rendered a “figurehead” as she had not been included in a high-level meeting held in Delhi to discuss “all aspects” of Jammu and Kashmir.
“High level meeting in Delhi reviews ‘all aspects of J&K situation’ and CM is not included. @mehbooba_mufti reduced to a figurehead. Pity!!” Omar tweeted.
He was referring to a meeting of top Union ministers and BJP leaders, including party chief Amit Shah, in Delhi in which the political and security situation in Jammu and Kashmir besides rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits was discussed.
The meeting was chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and attended by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Defence Minister Manohar Parikar, Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office Jitendra Singh, among others.
While being sarcastic, Omar added, “It seems the only thing expected of CM @mehbooba_mufti is to visit Delhi to hand over bouquets of flowers to high dignitaries for photo opps.”
The former Chief Minister said while Governor N N Vohra represented the state during a similar meeting held in Delhi earlier this month, even he was not present at today’s meeting.
“There are 20+ flights from Srinagar to Delhi everyday and the state has its own plane so don’t tell me logistics came in the way,” he added.
