Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has called Uttar Pradesh “Naya J&K” as the row over the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri escalated on Monday.
Earlier, the Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti on Monday lashed out at the Centre, saying this government uses iron first on its own people but welcomes Chinese troops.
They were also commenting in reference to the Uttar Pradesh government’s move to detain opposition leaders, including Priyanka Gandhi, as they tried to visit families of slain farmers. At least four farmers were killed when Union minister of state for home, Ajay Mishra Teni’s son Ashish Mishra Monu rammed over the farmers in Uttar Pradesh.
“Applying Section 144 wherever human rights & dignity is trampled has emerged as GOIs preferred approach. This government shows no hesitation in using an iron fist with its own people but welcomes Chinese troops with open arms,” Mehbooba said in a tweet. (With inputs from agencies)
