On 15 August, Omar Abdullah slammed Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for not taking responsibility for the ongoing unrest in the Valley.
Speaking about the times when Mufti as the leader of the opposition, blamed then J&K Chief Minister for the violence in the valley, Omar claimed that Mehbooba was only "living in denial".
Mehbooba, who made her maiden speech at an Independence Day function as chief minister, said in her address, "Encounters have taken place in the past, will continue to take place. What was my government's fault?"
While referring to the national tricolor falling off the post as Mehbooba hoisted it, the former chief minister of J&K said that Mehbooba will have to find someone to blame for failing to hoist the national flag at the Independence Day function.
Now @MehboobaMufti will have to find someone to blame for failing to hoist the 🇮🇳 in Srinagar since nothing is ever her fault.— Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) August 15, 2016
Earlier in the day, the national tricolor fell off the post as Mehbooba Mufti hoisted it at Bakshi stadium in Srinagar, where the main Independence Day function of the state was held.
Mehbooba, who was hoisting the national flag as Chief Minister for the first time, pulled the string attached to the post only to see the tricolor fall from the post and land on the ground.
