Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said he has great respect for his uncle
and ousted NC leader Mustafa Kamal, a day after the latter
called him a "weak" person.

him," Omar posted on Twitter.

saying the kind of public response he got for his remarks on
AFSPA made Omar "nervous" who was compelled to remove him from
On November 10, NC President Farooq Abdullah had asked
his younger brother Kamal to quit party posts for his
controversial remarks on AFSPA.
Kamal had said "disgruntled" elements within the Army
were behind grenade attacks recently and these were aimed
at scuttling moves by the Omar Abdullah government for
withdrawal of the AFSPA from some parts of Jammu and Kashmir.
"The matter is between him and my father, no reason to
drag me into it," Omar twitted.
