Srinagar:An argument centring on BJP between Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti soon after their detention at Hari Niwas Palace last week allegedly got so nasty that the two former J&K chief ministers could no longer be housed in the same place, officials have revealed.

“Both were accusing each other of getting BJP into Jammu and Kashmir. At one point, Omar shouted at Mehbooba, taunting her and the late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for aligning with BJP between 2015 and 2018,” an official of the hospitality and protocol department said on condition of anonymity.

Omar and Mehbooba, who had recently sparred on Twitter over the triple talaq bill’s passage in Parliament, allegedly fired verbal volleys at each other within earshot of the staff at Hari Niwas Palace, a government guesthouse that used to be infamous as an interrogation centre for captured militants.
