Jammu: Terming Chief Minister Omar Abdullah`s
remarks in the State Assembly as "anti-India", an organisation
of Kashmiri Pandits on Friday demanded his dismissal accusing him
of speaking on separatist lines.
"We condemn the state statement of Omar Abdullah in the
Assembly. It is an anti-India statement. We want his
dismissal", All parties Migrants Co-Ordination Committee
(APMCC) Chairman Vinood Pandit said here today.

Pandit said displaced Pandits were shocked by Omar`s
speech on the floor of the House "in which he had taken a
U-turn to speak on separatist lines."

Criticising the Chief Minister for advocating autonomy to
J&K, he said, the clock cannot be put back.
"If Centre grants Autonomy then it should also return the
land snatched from Pandits and Rajputs in the name of land to
tillers agitation at the time of Sheikh Mohd Abdullah for
which they were not even paid compensation," he said.
