Tamil Nadu assembly backs Rajive Gandhi killers

Srinagar: Responding to the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) criticism of his Twitter comments, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Thursday hit out at the party over its ally, the Akali Dal, in Punjab seeking clemency for Devinder Paul Singh Bhullar.

In his comment posted on the micro blogging site, Omar Abdullah said: "I'm curious to see what Shahnawaz Hussain & the other BJP chaps are gonna say now. This is their government in Punjab?"

Omar was ridiculing the Akali Dal-led government in Punjab for their demand for clemency to Bhullar, a Khalistan Liberation Front militant on death row who has been in jail for the last ten years.

Omar's latest tweet was prompted after the BJP criticised him for an earlier posting in which he wondered whether a resolution on Afzal Guru by the Jammu and Kashmir assembly, similar to the one passed by the Tamil Nadu assembly seeking clemency for three killers of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, would have received the muted response it had evoked.

Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, who is from Kashmir Valley, is on death row. His clemency petition is pending with the president and the home ministry recently recommended it be rejected.
