Srinagar, Apr 13: Saying there are few instances of honest disclosure in politics, opposition leader Omar Abdullah on Friday lauded tourism minister Tassaduq Mufti for his comment: “BJP-PDP partners in crime, people no longer trust us”.
Omar made an assertion that “there are very few instances in politics” to make “honest” statements.
“He has not much experience of politics. He is only a few months old minister. I would not say his remarks came late. I salute his honesty… very few instances come in politics to see this kind of honesty and sincerity”.
Tassaduq, in a freewheeling interview to a national newspaper, said: “Today the threat is that while we are in control, we are no longer trusted. We were supposed to be partners in rebuilding of this place but, sad to admit this, due to the non-fulfilling of commitments, we have ended up being partners in a crime that an entire generation of Kashmiris might have to pay with their blood.”
