Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday asked the opposition to approach the judiciary if they were not satisfied with the appointment of a one-man commission set up to probe the custodial death of his party worker Haji Yousuf. He was speaking to mediapersons outside Jammu’s Regional Transport Office where he had come to get his driving licence renewed. “Let me tell the opposition that if they have any doubt on the credibility of Justice B S Bedi, a retired Supreme Court judge who has nothing to do with the state, then they should take up the matter with the judiciary,” Omar said. He also reiterated his stand on the partial withdrawal of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). “My government can go ahead with it after addressing the Army’s concerns,” the chief minister said. Omar stated that he believed that there was ample scope for his government to go ahead with what it had decided to do about AFSPA. “At the same time we have to address the army’s concerns,”he said. The chief minister added that he had raised the issue with the Centre during his recent New Delhi visit but did not divulge further details. About his visit to the RTO office, Omar tweeted: “Went to the RTO office in Jammu to get my licence. Had a paper booklet so decided it was time to get the plastic card one.”
