Omar raising AFSPA, autonomy to hide his failure: BJP
15 Jul Lashing at Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for mis-governance and failure on all fronts in the state, BJP today said he is raising the AFSPA bogey and greater autonomy, only to divert people's attention from the failure of his government. "The Chief Minister is raising the issues of withdrawal of AFSPA, autonomy and others to divert people's attention from failure of his government," senior BJP leader and in-charge of Rajouri-Poonch-Nowshera districts Kuldeep Raj Gupta told reporters here today. Lashing at NC government for total failure on all fronts, he said "the twin border districts of Rajouri and Poonch still remain neglected and discriminated in matters related to development and welfare schemes." More than 2,000 people have sacrificed their lives after the outburst of militancy in Rajouri district alone, Gupta said, adding that hundreds of crores of rupees are being spent for developmental works in these districts, but the ground situation is different.
