Omar lashes out at Mehbboba over her I-Day speech

Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today hit out at incumbent Mehbooba Mufti for not owning up responsibility for the prevailing situation in the valley since she took over the reins of the PDP-BJP coalition government.

"Between 2009-14 everything was my fault but as of the last 4 months nothing is @MehboobaMufti's fault (sic)," Omar wrote on Twitter.

Omar was referring to the criticism he was subjected to by Mehbooba when he was the Chief Minister and she was the leader of opposition.

Mehbooba, who made her maiden speech at an Independence Day function as chief minister, said, "Encounters have taken place in the past, will continue to take place. What was my government's fault?"

Omar created a hashtag "living in denial" to go with his tweets.
