After Omar Abdullah, the former chief minister’s silence over the revival of the special status of Kashmir, people are finding it difficult to trust him since they feel he has already been ‘sold-out’ to Delhi. Omar Abdullah has recently been released after 7 months under the house arrest since 5th August, 2019.
Omar, vice-president of the National Conference presented his views on the new domicile law for Jammu and Kashmir but refrained from passing any further comments on the special status of Kashmir, he also revealed that he won’t keep quiet for a long time since he is still waiting for the right moment to speak up. He also added that amidst coronavirus havoc this was not the right time to allow new law to intervene in the matters of Kashmir since it will act as an insult to people’s injuries.
Being a prominent user of twitter, he took the the help of it to express his views on the new domicile law. Omar tweeted, “It’s high time the people of J&K get to decide the laws that will govern them rather than being subjected to the whims & fancies of the Centre where orders are issued in the morning & changes to the same order issued in the evening. Restore statehood, conduct elections. #Democracy.”
Back on Monday, the Centre made new rules that included every Indian and not exclusively Kashmiris that people who have resided in Jammu and Kashmir for at least 15 years would get the “domicile.” People showed their anger for Omar’s statement on elections and statehood that his release is maybe a result of his “deal.”
