Why Omar Abdullah could not visit Ramban and offer Condolences to members of the Deceased families?

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has strongly condemned the Ramban firing incident and immediately took up the issue with the Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde claiming excessive use of force against unarmed protestors was totally ‘unacceptable’.

OmarChief Minister Omar Abdullah led cabinet meeting also took strong note of the killings and awarded 5 lakh compensation to the kith and kin  of deceased.

In addition political leaders of different parties and different statures issued public statements condemning the firing incident which lead to death of four civilians.
Chief Minister also targeted the media by tweeting that they had not taken care to report the facts in the sensitive case.
To prevent the tension from spilling over to different parts of Kashmir valley the state govt clamped down curfew for three days and prevented the mass assembly of people and marches against the firing incident.

But the bigger question is looming large in the minds of the local villagers in the Ramban area which had witnessed mayhem.

The common question people in the area are posing why Chief Minister Omar Abdullah cannot travel to the remote area of Gool in Ramban district and share the grief of members of the families whose families have lost their bread earners in the firing incident.Ramban DC office set ablaze by mob

The fact that the local villagers in the area are very well aware of the fact that it is not the BSF which opened fire on them but the officer of the J&K police who first targeted the local teacher and triggered series of protests.

It is probably because of this very reason the state government agencies have advised the Chief Minister not to  venture in there in the sensitive area as his visit may once again become rallying point for locals there and provoke a situation. Interestingly, the state govt had prevented assembly of politicians in the area  and stopped their movement when the passions were running high.

Chief Minister Omar Abdullah may  have avoided visiting the area for this reason as by visiting the area he may have invited wrath of the other political parties as his govt had prevented their entry in the area.
