Cong speaks Omar's words on BJP's R-Day plans

New Delhi: Backing the measures of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to deal with the march of Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) youth wing to Srinagar, the Congress said on Saturday that the state administration was fully empowered to deal with the situation. "Whosoever from any quarter, irrespective of ideology, religion, or political affiliation, tries to create any ambiance of provocation, tension or antagonism in Jammu and Kashmir is doing a great disservice to the nation and deserves to be condemned unequivocally," party spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said without specifically referring to the march. Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activists have announced their plans to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Republic Day.

The Congress is sharing power with the National Conference in Jammu and Kashmir.


After a high-level meeting presided over by Abdullah on Thursday, the state government said it had directed the civil and police authorities to ensure that all measures are taken to ensure that the law and order in the state is not disturbed in the run up to the Republic Day celebrations.


The BJP has planned a public meeting in Jammu January 25 to coincide with the march of its youth activists.
