Bhopal: BJP unit in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday
slammed Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for his
controversial statements on Afzal Guru and said he had no
right to continue in office.
"I do not know how a person who has made such a statement
can continue in office," BJP`s state unit chief Prabhat Jha
told reporters here.
He said it was sad that because of Congress, Omar had
been emboldened to make such a statement.
Prabhat said it also indicated Omar`s thinking about
terrorists and terrorism in his own state. It was definitely
not good for the country as a whole, he said.
Omar had tweeted that if Jammu and Kashmir Assembly had
passed a resolution against the death sentence given to Afzal
Guru as was done by the Tamil Nadu Assembly for the killers of
Rajiv Gandhi, the reaction would not have been as muted as it
Guru, a Parliament attack convict, is on death row and
the Union Ministry of Home Affairs has recommended to
President Pratibha Patil that his mercy petition be rejected.
