Omar Abdullah accuses Mufti govt of spying on him


New Delhi: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah has accused Mufti Mohammad Sayeed-led government of spying him.

MLA from Beerwah, Abdullah on Friday took to micro-blogging site Twitter to post his complain.

“Mufti Govt brazenly spying on me. A journalist interviewing me for a national daily just got stopped right outside my gate by CID person,” Abdullah tweeted.

“She was asked who she was and what was the purpose of her visit,” Omar said in another tweet.

“Dear Mufti Sahib, if you and your apparatchiks want to know what I’m up to, pick up the phone and ask me. Please don’t accost people outside my gate,” the former CM said.

Abdullah stepped down as Chief Minister in December last year, after losing in state elections to the Mufti-led People’s Democratic Party.

PDP rejects Omar Abdullah’s allegation of spying

Meanwhile, Ruling PDP on Friday rejected the allegation of former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah about spying on him, saying it was not a cop but a disgruntled National Conference worker who had accosted the journalist outside his residence.

The ruling party said Abdullah is levelling the allegation just to “make news” and hit back at him by charging his previous government of spying on PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and other leaders.

Rejecting the charge, PDP spokesman Waheedur Rehmaan Parra said, “It was not a cop who had questioned the journalist outside the residence of Omar Abdullah. It was a National Conference worker who was denied entry to Omar’s residence who had asked a few questions to the lady.”
