Omar Abdullah, the National Conference leader, today attacked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for not taking part in the high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi to review the violent situation in Kashmir.

Coming back from his four-nation Africa tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will today chair a meeting to review the violent situation in the Kashmir Valley.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who cancelled his visit to the United States, and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval are a part of the meeting chaired by the PM.

A senior official in Jammu and Kashmir told PTI that since it was a briefing by central ministers on the Kashmir situation, Mehbooba had no role in the high-level meeting.

On the micro blogging site twitter, Omar criticised Mehbooba:

Kashmir has been witnessing one of the worst violence in recent times, after protests broke out across the valley over Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani’s killing.

The Separatist groups have been calling for a shutdown ever since and have extended their strike call in Jammu and Kashmir by two more days.

The clashes between protesters and security forces in Kashmir has killed 23 people, even as normal life remained paralysed in the Valley.
