New Delhi: New and Renewable Energy Minister
Farooq Abdullah today apparently lost his cool over charges
that he was biased against Jammu region and favouring Kashmir
valley while implementing his ministry`s projects in the
state.

"What do you mean by Jammu (region) and Kashmir (region).
Are you trying to divide Jammu and Kashmir. Who says that.
Don`t try to divide the state. There is no such thing in the
state. Don`t ask me such questions," he said angrily.

He was asked why Jammu was not getting its share of solar
energy projects implemented in the state.

"Rs 500 crore has been given for development in Ladakh.
Can`t you see that. We are doing it everywhere in the state. I
am not differentiating between Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh. All
states are important to us as is the whole of India," the
Minister said.

Abdullah said as a Minister for entire India, it was
his responsibility to see that no state was left behind in
terms of development.

The Minister was talking to reporters on the sidelines of
a function here.
