BJP miffed at opposition parties over Kashmir unrest meeting

Jammu: BJP today attacked NC leader Omar Abdullah for "absolving" Pakistan of its role in the current turmoil in the Kashmir Valley and accused the opposition parties of "aggravating the prevailing situation" to destabilise the coalition government in the state.

Hitting out at the opposition parties a day after their meeting to discuss the Kashmir unrest, BJP also said it was not the time to have dialogue with Pakistan or any other individuals or groups on the Jammu and Kashmir issues.

"Leaders like Omar Abdullah, Mohammed Yousuf Tarigami and Congress leaders who participated in yesterday's meeting of opposition parties in Srinagar are trying to fish in troubles waters," BJP state spokesperson Virender Gupta alleged.

He claimed that none of the leaders had played any effective role in pacifying the situation.

"Instead of playing a constructive role these leaders remained engaged in instigating the people and aggravating the prevailing situation.
