Omar slams PDP, BJP unholy alliance in Kashmir

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Saturday ridiculed the statement of BJP national secretary Ram Madhav that there was "no threat" to PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir and said: "They (PDP) are partners in crime with BJP and Kashmiris are paying with their blood."

Referring to Tourism Minister Tassaduq Mufti's statement that PDP was 'partner in crime' with the BJP, Omar tweeted: "Why should there be a threat? As Tassaduq Mufti said, you are both 'partners in crime, so while you share the spoils of your crimes the people bleed."

Madhav had said there was no threat to the ruling PDP-BJP coalition as both the parties were working in coordination. He arrived in Jammu on Saturday to chair a BJP legislature meet at the party headquarters.

'Cong politicising'

Madhav, who is also the BJP in-charge for J&K, said the resignations of two BJP ministers, who courted controversy by attending a rally supporting those accused of raping and killing a young girl in Kathua, will be handed over to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for further action.

"The resignation of the ministers was to address the fears of not only the PDP and the people of Jammu and Kashmir but the entire nation," he said while lashing out at the Congress, alleging that it was trying to politicise the issue.

Stating that there was no possibility of a CBI probe into the incident as demanded by some state BJP leaders, including the two ministers who resigned on Friday, Madhav said, "The police has completed the probe and now it is in the court of law. It is for the court to decide."
