Srinagar: National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah has asked the Government of India to ‘put in the correct context’ the recent visit of former Norwegian premier to both parts of divided Kashmir.
In a tweet Omar while asking ‘What are the Norwegians up to in Kashmir’, said:
What are the Norwegians up to in Kashmir? Would either @SushmaSwaraj ji or Doval ji care to put the visit of the former Norwegian PM to both sides of the divided state in the correct context or do we have to rely on rumours & conjecture?
