Omar hesitates to receive donation from Kejriwal’s AAP
Srinagar, September 25, 2014 (PPI-OT): The puppet Chief Minister of occupied Kashmir, Omar Abdullah has refused to take donation of Rs 6 crores from Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led by Arvind Kejriwal.
The AAP spokesperson, Sanjay Singh, who is currently in the Valley, in a media interview in Srinagar said that he had made several attempts to meet Omar Abdullah but to no avail.
He said that AAP had collected Rs 6 crores for rehabilitation of flood-hit Kashmir. “We want to help Kashmiri people but the authorities were not cooperating. We don’t know why Omar is hesitant to take the money,” he said.
Sanjay Singh, who is camping in Kashmir for last two weeks, has visited many flood-hit areas to take stock of the situation. “I have visited many flood-affected areas of Kashmir. There is a major destruction everywhere. People have lost everything. Majority of the orchard trees and paddy fields are destroyed in floods. It requires a Herculean effort to overcome the situation,” he said.
He said the authorities should provide immediate compensation to farmers, whose orchards and paddy fields are destroyed in the floods. “Farmers are the most affected people. I visited many areas in Srinagar and South Kashmir, where situation is very grim”, he deplored.
