Srinagar, Aug 2: Reacting to Government advisory to Amarnath pilgrims and tourists to curtail their stay and leave Kashmir valley, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Friday said though this unprecedented order would seem to suggest a genuine fear of a massive terror strike at yatris and tourists but this will do nothing to dampen the sense of fear in the valley at the moment.
Taking to micro blogging site twitter after the advisory issued by Principal secretary Home Shaleen Kabra, National Conference (NC) vice president Omar said “Although this unprecedented order would seem to suggest a genuine fear of a massive terror strike directed at Amarnath ji yatris or/and tourists this will do nothing to dampen the sense of fear & foreboding that prevails in the valley at the moment”.
In another tweet he said “ Seriously? You think an official order telling tourists to leave immediately will not cause them to run from the valley as fast as they can? Which tourist will hang around after seeing this order. The airport & highway will be choked with people leaving”.(UNI)
