IIM to Jammu region, a 'blatant partisan politics': Omar

Press Trust of India  |  Srinagar 

Opposition (NC) working president today termed as "blatant partisan politics" the Centre's decision to set up an in Jammu region and hit out at Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, saying she had sold her soul to remain in power.

"Jammu gets the & gets the also. Where have all those voices that called for balanced regional development in J-K disappeared?" the former J-K chief minister tweeted.



He was reacting to the Union cabinet's nod to establish an Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Jammu region.

Earlier, an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) was also approved for the Jammu region.

The decision to approve the for Jammu is just blatant partisan politics of the kind we have come to expect from the BJP-PDP coalition, Omar said, adding no wonder so much of the state is restive today.

The NC leader said when Kashmir was awarded an All Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Jammu agitated, successfully, for its right to be granted one as well.

"Why this partisanship now? And don't tell me an 'out campus' is good enough, because if it was, the would have been placed in Kashmir with the out campus in Jammu," he said.

Omar also hit out at Mehbooba saying she had sold her soul to remain in power.

"I realise that @MehboobaMufti has had to sell out her political agenda to remain in power but I didn't realise she's sold her soul also!!!" the NC working president said.
