Omar 1


Srinagar, Mar 12: National conference working president and former chief minister Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah reacted to the ouster of Finance Minister Dr Haseeb A Drabu from the cabinet by saying that it would be interesting to see who replaces him.
“His PHDCCI speech cost him dearly. Will be interesting to see who replaces him in the Finance Ministry,” Omar tweeted.
His another tweet read: “Simply sacking the architect of the BJP-PDP alliance & co-author of the agenda of alliance will not redeem the PDP for the sins of the last 3 years.”
The Jammu and Kashmir government led by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday sacked the Minister for Finance Dr Haseeb A Drabu from state cabinet following the latter’s controversial statement wherein he termed the Kashmir issue as ‘apolitical.’
