Srinagar: Outgoing Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today questioned BJP's reported negotiations with PDP, which wants revocation of AFSPA, saying the ruling party at the Centre had accused him of compromising national security whenever he raised the issue.  

“So when I raised AFSPA I was accused of playing politics with Nat Sec (national security). BJP negotiates Govt (government) formation with @jkpdp using AFSPA & that's OK??” Omar wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.  

Omar also criticized Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for its “assertion” that a coalition with BJP is necessary for getting the special assistance of Rs 44,000 crore submitted by his government for the flood-affected people of the state.  “We are being told by the @jkpdp that the tie up with BJP is necessary for the 44,000 Cr flood relief. Shouldn't a state just get its due?” Omar said.
