Omar Abdullah Tweets After His Release, Changes His Bio

In another sarcastic tweet, Abdullah said if anyone wants tips on surviving quarantine or a lockdown, he has months of experience. 

Srinagar| Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader, Omar Abdullah, was released today from the detention under Public Safety Act (PSA). Omar was detained on a night before the abrogation of article 370 which provided special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

In his first tweet after the release, Omar wrote, “232 days after my detention today I finally left Hari Niwas. It’s a very different world today to the one that existed on 5th August 2019.”

Omar was booked under the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA). His sister Sara Abdullah Pilot had made an appeal in the Supreme Court for his release. In last week, the Supreme Court had asked the central government if they are planning to release Abdullah, failing which the court will listen to the plea of Sarah Abdulla.

Omar was released today, 10 days after his father and former J&K Chief Minister, Farooq Abdullah, was released.

In his second tweet, Omar Abdullah tweeted a picture with his father and mother, quoting, “Had lunch with my mum & dad for the first time in almost 8 months. I can’t remember a better meal even though I’ve been in a bit of a daze & don’t remember what I ate.”

Omar Abdullah also changed his Twitter bio adding “Former PSA Political detinue” in it, a swipe at his 232 days long detention after the abrogation of article 370 in J&K.

Talking about the current Covid-19 crisis, he sarcastically tweeted, “On a lighter note if anyone wants tips on surviving quarantine or a lock down I have months of experience at my disposal, perhaps a blog is in order.”
