Srinagar, April 19: Amidst a controversy over Syed Ali Shah Geelani's claim that Narendra Modi had sent emissaries to meet him, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday questioned the secrecy behind the move and asked the hardline separatist leader to identify the pointmen to establish who was "lying".

With the BJP denying Geelani's claims, Omar said the easiest way to find out the truth was to identify the emissaries. "So SAS (Syed Ali Shah) Geelani has claimed that NaMo (Narendra Modi) sent emissaries to talk to him and other separatist leaders in Delhi, in SASG's case twice," Omar wrote on twitter.com. "So who is lying SAS Geelani or the NaMo campaign? Easy way to find out - let SASG identify the emissaries who met him on behalf of NaMo," the chief minister said.

Abdullah asked Geelani to identify the emissaries to know who was "lying".

The chief minister wanted to know who the emissaries were and what offer they made as the BJP's position on Article 370 of the Constitution, which guarantees special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) was known, he said.
