India @70: Omar attacks, "Hope Modi's advise covers security forces too"

New Delhi: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Tuesday hoped that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's assertion that the Kashmir problem cannot be resolved by "abuse" and "bullets" will be applicable to security forces too.

"Actually he (Modi) said the Kashmir issue will not be resolved by abuse and bullets. I guess that covers both sides - terrorists and security forces," the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister tweeted. Modi's remarks that the Kashmir problem cannot be resolved by "goli se" (bullets) or "gaali se" (abuse) came in his Independence Day speech from the Red Fort.
