Srinagar: Criticizing the administration for not allowing him to address the workers’ meeting at Dak Banglow Drass, National Conference (NC) Vice President and former chief minister, Omar Abdullah Monday said that nobody can harm the relationship between Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

Addressing workers at Drass, Omar, said, “We (JK people and Ladakhi people) have a strong relationship. Nobody can change it even if they draw a fake line on a map. We know how you are dealing with the situations, how you are being ignored.”

About disallowing the programme at Dak Banglow Drass, Omar said that they were not going to occupy the city or take forward any revolt. “I was not supposed to stay at Dak Banglow for my whole life; such things are the testimony to the fact that they are not even able to understand their own decision. If bifurcating Ladakh and JK would have been your demand then they should not have felt any hesitation. Having a mic or not would have been no issue for them then.”

He said: “It is we who pressed for the programme today here otherwise, were given a paper wherein we were asked not to visit here. I was also chief minister for six years but I am not able to understand such decisions. What will happen after our meeting today, will it bring any change on the ground.”

He further said that “China has entered into the land and you are not able to send them back, but instead you are not allowing us to visit Drass from Srinagar.” (KNO)
