National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah on Friday hit out at the former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti after she warned the Centre of “dangerous consequences” for attempting to engineer split in her Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“She must really be desperate if she is threatening the centre with renewed militancy if PDP breaks up. She seems to have forgotten that militancy in Kashmir has already been reborn under her most able administration,” tweeted Omar.

He said that no new militant would be born if the PDP breaks up. “Let me put this out here for all to remember NOT ONE NEW MILITANT WILL BE CREATED WITH THE BREAK UP OF THE PDP. People will not mourn the demise of a party created in Delhi only to divide the votes of Kashmiris,” Omar said, in another tweet.

Earlier, Mehbooba warned the Centre of “dangerous situation” if it tried to split her party.

“If Delhi tries to dismiss the voting rights of people like 1987, if it tries to create divisions & interfere like that then I think just like a Salahuddin and a Yasin Malik were born in 1987…if it tries to break PDP like that then outcomes will be dangerous,” said Mehbooba while talking to reporters at the martyrs’ graveyard in Srinagar.
