Srinagar: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Thursday hit out at the Centre for withdrawing security to mainstream political workers.
Abdullah termed the latest action by the Centre as a ‘retrograde’ step.
He said such a move will weaken the political activity in the state.
Abdullah urged Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik to reconsider his administration’s decision, or else they will approach the court.
He alleged that the Centre has resorted to pick and choose to carry out the decision to withdraw security of some mainstream political leaders.
