IIOJK in focus

Tourist arrivals should not be linked with normalcy in IIOJK: Omar Abdullah

Srinagar, May 27 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference Vice President, Omar Abdullah, today, said tourist arrivals in the territory should not be linked with normalcy as there is an atmosphere of fear in which no one is certain about his future.

He was speaking to reporters at Chadoora in Budgam where he had gone to condole the killing of Television artist Amreen Bhat by unknown gunmen on Wednesday.

“Tourist arrivals to Kashmir should not be seen as a sign of normalcy. Tourists have been coming here ever since 1995, some years less and some more,” Omar Abdullah said.

He said the claims of normalcy by the Indian government do not reflect the ground reality.

Asked about ED summon to NC president and Farooq Abdullah, he said his father has maintained innocence and has been cooperating with the agency. “Tell me which party, opposing the BJP, has not had their doors knocked?” he asked.
