Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for talking about Yoga at a time when an encounter with terrorists was raging on at Pathankot Air Base.

"Business as usual is all well and good but a speech about Yoga while an encounter rages at an Air Base in #Pathankot seems totally out of sync," Mr Abdullah wrote on Twitter.

Business as usual is all well & good but a speech about yoga while an encounter rages at an Air Base in #Pathankot seems totally out of sync

 

He was referring to the Prime Minister's address at a Yoga conference in Karnataka.

He also criticised the authorities in Punjab for not making emergency evacuation arrangements for injured soldiers at the scene of deadly suicide attack in Pathankot.

"Really? A 24 hour long operation and we don't have any critical care ambulances for our brave soldiers?" he said.

He was responding to reports that an injured NSG jawan was rushed to a hospital in a car. He also expressed condolences over the death of security force personnel in the Pathankot attack.

"Sorry to hear about the deaths of our brave security force personnel in the #PathankotAttack. Prayers for the deceased & their families. RIP," he said.
