Indirectly Omar also taunted retired Police officer Ashiq Bukhari,  and said , “When today Sayeed has unabashedly welcomed a recently retired Police Officer, who was at the forefront of the police response in 2010 unrest, into his party, he (Sayeed) has yet again exposed his bent of mind and ideology before the people”.

"Sayeed should answer clearly - how can he ever express remorse over the loss of lives in 2010 - when he has welcomed a certain SSP into his ranks," Omar further added.
