National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that the All Party Delegation (APD), which visited the unrest-hit Kashmir this week, achieved "nothing" and there is "no sense of urgency" to control the situation.
I'm struggling to find a single achievement that the all party delegation can lay claim to after visiting J&K. Nothing comes to mind as yet!— Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) September 7, 2016
His tweet came shortly after the members of the delegation, which was headed by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, met in New Delhi to discuss the outcome of the two-day visit to Kashmir.
The delegation issued a statement appealing for peace in the Valley to which the former J&K CM responded by saying that if they just had to issue an appeal, they could have done it without the visit.
If all they had to do was issue this tame & sterile appeal they could very easily have done so without wasting the time & money on a visit.— Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) September 7, 2016
75 people have died, 1000s of civilians & security personnel have been injured & there is no sense of urgency in getting a grip on things!!!— Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) September 7, 2016
The APD released a unanimous statement appealing to the people of the state to shun the path of violence and resolve all the issues through dialogue and discussion.
Earlier, Omar asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to take 'responsibility' for the current situation in the Valley.
