'Terrorists no more deterred from attacking our armed forces'

Press Trust of India  |  Srinagar 

Claiming that surgical strikes have failed to "deter" militants, former Chief Minister has asked the Centre to explain its policy to the nation after seven army personnel were killed by terrorists in Nagrota.

"So on a day on which 7 of our brave soldiers lost their lives to terrorist bullets the must explain its policy to nation," Omar wrote on Twitter late last night after the Nagrota attack.



"It is also true that terrorists are no more deterred from attacking our armed forces today than they were prior to the 'surgical strikes'!" he wrote.

Jammu region was rocked by two terror attacks yesterday in which 7 army personnel, including two Major-rank officers, were killed and eight other security men, including a BSF DIG, were injured, before six heavily-armed terrorists were eliminated in the separate fierce encounters.

Taking a dig at the BJP, the working president claimed was no more isolated internationally now than it was six months ago.

"Regardless of what spokespersons would have us believe, is no more isolated internationally today than it was 6 months ago," he said.

Apparently referring to the sharp criticism by the of his father and former Union Minister Farooq Abdullah over his remarks in which he had made light of India's claims over Pak-occupied-Kashmir, Omar said "it's all very well to call people who question the govt (government) line 'Friends of Pakistan' but that's a poor excuse for a cogent, thought out policy".

He also expressed condolences to the families of the armymen killed in the attack. "Heart felt condolences to the families of the deceased officer & jawans. May their souls rest in peace.
