Srinagar: A political storm erupted with former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah accusing the government of "brazenly" spying on him, a charge rejected by the ruling PDP.
Omar, the working President of opposition National Conference, said a CID person was posted outside his residence to keep a watch on people coming and going out. "Mufti Govt brazenly spying on me. A journalist interviewing me for a national daily just got stopped right outside my gate by CID person," he tweeted.
"She (journalist) was asked who she was and what the purpose of her visit was! Seriously guys if you want to know just ask me, I couldn't care less if you do ," he added.Addressing Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Omar wrote, "Dear Mufti Sb, 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!"
PDP rejected the accusation, saying Abdullah is levelling the allegation just to "make news", and hit back by charging him of spying on PDP president Mehbooba Mufti and other leaders when he was the Chief Minister.
Parra, who is political advisor to CM, 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."
At the same time, he said since Omar enjoys Z-Plus security, "routine surveillance" is maintained at his residence. To this, Omar tweeted: "I'm glad @parawahid, Advisor to CM J&K, has owned up to the spying, calling it "routine surveillance" in an interview to an English Channel."
Parra said the PDP-BJP coalition government does not waste "a second" on thinking about what the opposition National Conference Working President (Omar Abdullah) was doing.
"We do not even spend a second about what he is doing. He has made this unfortunate statement as he only wants to make news .... He (Abdullah) tweets and that is what he did during his six years (as Chief Minister)," he said. Parra levelled counter allegations, saying during Omar Abdullah's tenure, "He used to spy on PDP president and other leaders of our party. We know what he does." .
