NEW DELHI/SRINAGAR: National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah Tuesday denied there were political reasons for his current visit to Delhi and dismissed as “time pass for bored minds” speculation that the party was divided on key issues.

The former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister took to Twitter to refute suggestions that his visit was linked to reported moves for formation of an Advisory Council which may be headed by Altaf Bukhari, leader of the Centre-friendly Apni Party set up recently.

His comments come in backdrop of perceived differences between two senior party leaders Tanvir Sadiq and Agha Ruhullah Mehdi over the events of August 5 last which saw virtual abrogation of Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. (AGENCIES)
