Srinagar, Dec 2: Omar Abdullah, the leader of the National Conference (NC), claimed on Saturday that by commemorating the day of Nagaland Statehood, Raj Bhavan was “rubbing salt in to the wounds” of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. An official statement said that the Nagaland Statehood Day was celebrated on Friday at the Raj Bhawan in Jammu, fostering the spirit of “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat” with zeal and excitement.But speaking of another state’s statehood day celebration, Abdullah said that irony dies in Jammu and Kashmir because the region’s union territory day was observed after it was demoted from a state. “In J&K, Irony meets his demise. In Jammu, we commemorate Nagaland Statehood Day at Raj Bhavan, but in J&K, we observe “Union Territory Day.” Talk about adding salt to the people’s wounds here, wrote Abdullah, the former J-K chief minister, in a post on X. On August 5, 2019, the Centre revoked Article 370 of the Constitution, dividing Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories: J-K and Ladakh. On October 31, the J.K. administration observed Union Territory Day.
