JKNPP asks Centre to break silence over Omar`s remarks
Jammu: Terming Chief Minister Omar Abdullah`s statement in the state Assembly as "anti-India", National Panthers Party (JKNPP) on Saturday threatened to launch protests in Jammu and Kashmir if UPA did not break its "criminal silence" over the issue.
"Our party shall start protests at district and tehsil headquarters against Omar Abdullah government if UPA did not clear its stand over Omar`s anti-national statement in the
Assembly regarding merger of J&K with the Union of India", JKNPP President and MLA Balwant Singh Mankotia told reporters.
Accusing Omar of promoting the separatist agenda by delivering a statement like that in the House, he said the Centre`s silence over the issue was criminal.
"The statement of Chief Minister has promoted propaganda of separatists and the Centre`s silence over this is criminal," he said.
