Accept your failings, stop looking at New Delhi, Islamabad: Omar Abdullah tells Mehbooba Mufti


A day after militants decamped with three rifles from a police guarding post at a hotel in Srinagar, opposition National Conference leader Omar Abdullah asked the chief minister Mehbooba Mufti “to stop looking at New Delhi  and Islamabad to bail her out and start acknowledging the failings of her administration.”

The incident happened a day after government announced ceasefire during Ramzan.

It is a second such incident, as earlier a rifle was snatched by suspected militants outside Kashmir University at Hazratbal.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
