SRINAGAR: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has lashed out at Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, saying it was "disdainful" of him to claim success of Kashmiri youth in civil services was due to the NDA government at the Centre.            

"How disrespectful and disdainful of @naqvimukhtar to claim the success of Kashmiri youth as some sort of NDA achievement.#shame," Omar wrote on Twitter.   

The former chief minister was responding to the reported remarks of Naqvi yesterday that "youths in Kashmir earlier joined ISIS. They have now started joining the IAS (Indian Administrative Service)".   

Naqvi had said this was because of the NDA government at the Centre. "Actually Kashmiris joined the civil services LONG before the NDA existed & will join long after the NDA disappears!" Omar said.
