Madhav, Omar spar over UNMOG office in Srinagar

Srinagar, Dec 8 (PTI) BJP leader Ram Madhav and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today sparred on the social media over the presence of UN Military Observers Group (UNMOG) office in Srinagar, with Madhav calling it an “unnecessary provocation” for the separatists in the Valley.

Omar responded by asking the BJP General Secretary to have the UMNMOG office relocated as his party was in power both in the state and at the Centre.

Madav took to twitter today to question the presence of UNMOG office here.

“UN office at Srinagar is an unnecessary provocation 4 (for) separatists 2 (to) organize marches.

“Pak has it in Rawalpindi. Why do we have it in Srinagar,” Madhav, who is BJP's pointsman in and , tweeted apparently referring to the call given by separatist groups asking people to march to the local UN office on December 10.

To this, the NC leader replied, “Jenab, not to put too fine a point on it but please correct what we failed to do in that case as you are in power in Centre and in the state.”

Hinting at Conference being part of the NDA government led by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Madhav then quipped “We didn't do it when ‘WE' were in power some 15 years ago either.”

However, Omar told Madhav that no one had called for such a thing when NC and BJP were alliance partners at the Centre.

“Touche' but in ‘our' , I don't recall anyone in a position of authority calling for UNMOGIP removal from Srinagar,” he said.
