SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today hit out at his successor Mufti Mohammad Sayeed over the recent militant attacks targeting mobile service providers, questioning why he has failed to "reassure" the people in the Valley.

"Has Mufti Syed said anything to reassure the people connected with the Cell Phone industry in Kashmir? A single statement? Probably won't!!" Omar tweeted.

The National Conference (NC) leader said that Mufti would "oversee the demise of cell phone services in the Valley."

"Mufti Syed in 2002-2005 said (during his previous term as the chief minister) 'I gave the people of J&K cell phones' and Mufti Syed (20)15-?? 'I oversaw the demise & removal of cell phone services in Kashmir'," Omar said, targeting the PDP patron.

"Isn't the 100 day anniversary of this Govt coming up as well? Instead of candles they will blow out cell towers!!!" he said.

"Is it any wonder people are searching for the Mufti of 2002 & can't seem to find him anywhere!!!" he added.

Chief Minister Sayeed has sought to downplay the series of attacks on mobile telecom installations and people associated with it in the Valley, saying it was a "temporary" phase and those responsible for it will be "taken care of".
