Kolkata, Sep 16: Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, who has been facing flak from several spheres over the situation in Kashmir, has found support from another youngster in politics - Rahul Gandhi.

"Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is a youngster and Kashmir is a difficult place. Omar is doing a tough job. The Congress is supporting Omar. He is an elected leader of National Conference," the Congress General Secretary said here at a press conference.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as well as PDP have been alleging that the situation in Kashmir is spiraling out of control due to the incompetence of the state government led by Omar Abdullah.

On the concerns over the involvement of Kashmiri youth in the violence, Gandhi said that it was necessary to involve the Kashmiri youth in the political system.

"I will go to Jammu and Kashmir as my drive is to go to any part of India to bring youth of Kashmir into political system. It's a full time responsibility to bring youngsters in politics," he said.

UPA chairperson, Sonia Gandhi as well spoke on the youth's anger in the valley at the all-party meet on Wednesday, Sep 15.

Rahul, however, stressed that his focus currently is Youth Congress and he could not take up the Kashmir crisis as it is not a part time problem, but a full time one.
