SRINAGAR: Soon after Asaduddin Owaisi blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alliance for having failed in tackling terror attacks, Deputy CM Jammu and Kashmir Nirmal Singh hit back at the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief holding him responsible for polarising the society.
"Owaisi has always polarised society on the basis of community. People like him are taking undue advantage of the greatness of the democracy. By speaking such things, Owaisi and others like him are weakening society and helping Pakistan, separatists, and terrorists in a way," Nirmal Singh said.
Owaisi had on Tuesday accused the BJP-PDP government of doing drama over the terror attacks in the state. "BJP-PDP waale donon baithke malayi khaa rahe hain. Kab tak drama karte rahenge yeh log. Yeh inki nakaami hai. Ab yeh sochna hai ki inn cheezon ki responsibility kiski hogi (How long will the BJP-PDP government continue this drama? This is their failure. Now we need to think who'll take up the responsibility of these things," the Hyderabad MP had said on the recent terror attacks that have taken in the state.
On Saturday a group of terrorists attacked the residential quarter inside the Army camp at Sunjuwan in Jammu killing seven people -- six soldiers, including two junior commissioned officers (JCOs) and father of one of the slain soldiers -- and injuring 10 others. On Monday, an encounter broke out between terrorists and security forces in Karan Nagar area. The encounter which began on Monday after the terrorists tried to attack a CRPF camp, ended after almost 24 hours on Tuesday.
