Omar Abdullah, vice president of National Conference (NC) today said that the NDA government’s claim that more militants were killed in Kashmir during its rule than in the UPA dispensation actually tells how it allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in the Valley.
Abdullah tweeted,”Actually Minister sahib this tells the story how your government allowed militancy & violence to re-emerge in J&K forcing the security forces to kill more terrorists.”
The former Jammu & Kashmir CM was reacting to Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad’s tweet & statement that more militants were killed under NDA government than in the UPA rule.
Ravi Shankar Prasad said that security forces had killed 72 & 67 militants in 2012 & 2013 under the UPA and the figure rose to 110 in 2014 when the BJP-led NDA came to power at the Centre. The forces killed 108 militants in 2015, 150 in 2016, 217 in 2017 & 75 till May this year.
The NC vice-president said,”You should be embarrassed by these statistics not be claiming them as some achievement.”
