Srinagar: People's Conference Chief Sajad Gani Lone and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today accused Government of not giving clearance to their bullet proof vehicles they have bought privately. Lone took to microblogging site Twitter and wrote, 'Just saying. M not complaining. So much about security u talk after someone dies. We know how u use security as a tool. I m supposed to b Z plus category. Have brought a private vehicle, Bullet proofed it. Is lying at the factory on Chandigarh. Y because clearance not given.' 'For 3 months the ADG security has not put his signature on an approval. This is with someone who apparently has Z plus. What would u do with lesser mortals with lesser levels of security,' he wrote in another tweet. Problem is not all urs. Post August 5 there is a perception that political class in JK r thieves thugs etc etc. and the officer class including the police have actually begun to believe in it. Politicians r supposed to be dispensable - politically, socially and now physically, he tweeted. He also wrote, 'The remedy has to come from the union government and the @OfficeOfLGJandK They have will have to convey the indispensability of political class in a democracy.' 'The truth is that if today political class in JK can be dispensable what stops it from being dispensable across India sometime in the future. Enough of this childish behaviour. Please make the bureaucracy police or civil answerable. Let heads roll if heads r rolling physically,.' Lone tweeted. Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah replied to his tweet and wrote, 'Agree 100%. We also wanted to order 2 bullet proof vehicles for our senior Kashmir based office bearers who are being denied proper protection out of spite. The permission request is collecting dust on some desk in the administration.'
