Will withdraw all cases against stone pelters if we form next government: Omar Abdullah

35

SRINAGAR: Omar Abdullah, Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference (NC) vice president on Saturday said that his party will quash all the cases against the stone pelters if the party is voted to power in the next assembly elections.

“We will withdraw all cases against the stone pelters if we form the next government,” Omar said.

Addressing an election rally at Khanabal, Omar also reiterated that the NC government will abrogate the controversial Public Safety Act (PSA).

While claiming that NC had won the Baramulla Lok Sabha seat, Omar said that the party will win the Anantnag seat as well if people come out to vote.

Earlier, Omar Abdullah had said that the post of Sadar-e-Riyasat (President) and Wazir-e-Azam (Prime Minister) will be brought back to Jammu and Kashmir.

During a rally in Bandipora Omar had said, “other states joined the Union of India without any conditions. However Jammu and Kashmir acceded with certain conditions. Those included our own identity, own constitution. At that time we had our own ‘Sadar-e-Riyasat’ and ‘Wazir-e-Azam’. Inshallah, we will bring that back too.

Omar Abdullah had also said that if his party comes to power, within days the Public Safety Act will go.

Addressing a rally in Bandipora, Omar had said, “in our tenure from 2009-14, we attempted to bring some relaxation in PSA Act. We had removed the toughest parts from it but still today it is being highly misused.”
