Omar Abdullah
New Delhi, Jan 19: The decision of BJP to hoist tricolour in Srinagar's Lal Chowk on the coming Republic Day compelled Omar Abdullah to make an emergency meeting in New Delhi on Jan 19. But the question has been raised here that why Jammu Kashmir's chief minister is opposing hoisting of tricolour in its own country.

After his meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi and home minister P Chidambaram in the capital, Omar stated, "I am not going into get into any specific as to what we are going to do."

"As I said time and again, we are hoping that nothing will be done to precipitate the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. As we come close to Jan 26, we will decide what we will do," added Omar.

However, in reply, BJP spokesperson claimed, "We don't need a no objection certificate (No Objection Certificate) from Chief Minister Omar Abdullah."

"Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the country...in fact it would be nice if the CM welcomes the Ekta Yatra. It is his responsibility (to welcome)," stated the BJP spokesperson.
