National Conference leader Omar Abdullah took a dig on Thursday at the visit of 24 foreign envoys to Kashmir, asking them to send real tourists from their countries to Jammu and Kashmir.
The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar said in a tweet “Thank you for visiting Kashmir. Now please send some real tourists from your countries to visit J&K.”
The envoys from European, Latin American and African countries arrived here on Wednesday on a two-day visit to Jammu and Kashmir for assessing the ground situation in the Union Territory following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Constitution in August 2019.
Senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz described the visit of the envoys as a futile exercise on Wednesday.
Most of the prominent mainstream politicians from the Union Territory have maintained a silence on the visit of the ambassador.
