Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday claimed the “mistakes” committed by his government in dealing with the street protests in the Valley in 2010, have been “multiplied” by incumbent CM Mehbooba Mufti.
“I learnt from my mistakes, ensured they weren’t repeated again. @MehboobaMufti has not only repeated them but multiplied them many times,” Omar wrote on Twitter. The National Conference (NC) working president had recently said the ruling dispensation in the state had forgotten lessons of 2008 and 2010 when the Valley witnessed large-scale protests.
“I feel that unfortunately, the lessons which we learnt in 2008 and 2010, the present government has forgotten them for some reasons,” Omar told reporters on July 13. The former Chief Minister had also alleged that either the government’s assessment of the situation after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was wrong or its preparations were not right.
