Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference working president Omar Abdullah on Tuesday questioned the "actual role" of Dineshwar Sharma, appointed by the Centre as the interlocutor for Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing in the state assembly, Omar said that there was no clarity in Sharma's mandate.
He further said that the job of the representative should be to discuss major issues with actual stakeholders, but as said, he is not clear with his mandate.
"You blamed me of creating one Burhan Wani; how many Burhans have you created in last one-and-a-half years? You (the Jammu and Kashmir Government) told me I was responsible for giving birth to Burhan Wani. But did you for once think that as to how many Burhan Wanis you have given birth to in these one-and-a-half years? If I am responsible for one, how many are you responsible for? You should think about it," he added.
Burhan was a 22-year-old Hizbul commander who was killed by the security forces in Kashmir in July 2016.
Following his death, the valley was in a state of lockdown for a long time.
