SRINAGAR, Jul. 13, 2023 (TBINN)

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today set out from his home on foot to reach the party office after police allegedly denied him escort vehicles and I.T.B.P. personnel cover.

Omar Abdullah, the vice president of National Conference (N.C.), was scheduled to address a function at the party headquarters, Nawa-i-Subah, to pay homage to 22 Kashmiri people who were killed by the Army of a Dogra ruler on this day in 1931.

Omar alleged that the Jammu and Kashmir Police denied him his security escort vehicles and I.T.B.P.-cover to visit the party headquarters.There was no immediate response from the police.

Anyway, unfazed by the denial, Omar Abdullah set out to the office near Zero Bridge on foot from his home in the Gupkar area of the city in Srinagar, while a handful of his Special Security Group personnel, a wing of J-K Police responsible for guarding V.V.I.P.s, were seen walking along with him. The former J-K chief minister took to Twitter and posted a video of his walk to the office. “Dear @JmuKmrPolice don’t think that refusing to give me my escort vehicles & ITBP cover will stop me. I’ll walk to where I have to get to & that’s exactly what I’m doing now,” Abdullah said.

After reaching office, where some of his party leaders and activists were waiting for him, the N.C. vice president said the police would now send everything for his security. “Now that I’ve got to the office & will go ahead with my programme you will send everything. The fact is @JmuKmrPolice has stopped a lot of my senior colleagues from coming to the @JKNC_ office today by adopting the same tactics of stopping them in their homes. Notable amongst those stopped are Abdul Rahim Rather Sb, @AliMSagar_ Sb, Ali Mohd Dar Sb and others,” he said.

The N.C. said Omar Abdullah was to address the party workers to pay tributes to the 1931 martyrs.
