Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday expressed cynicism on the human resource development ministry’s directive to hoist the national flag in all central universities in the country.
Abdullah, however, said he was not against the decision as it looked like an innovative one to address separatist sentiments being voiced in various universities.
“I’m all for innovative solutions but let’s not kid ourselves that slogans heard in JNU or Jadavpur will disappear with this HRD order,” he said in another tweet.
Abdullah’s father, Farooq Abdullah, also a former state chief minister, had said on Thursday that the JNU problem should have been handled by the university’s vice chancellor and not allowed to spill out of the campus.
“It has become a big problem and God knows where it will end,” Farooq Abdullah said.
