Jammu, Mar 26: Accusing the Centre of adopting a "different yardstick" for Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday  questioned its "pick and choose" policy over Afzal Guru hanging and revoking of AFSPA while decrying the arrest of suspected Hizbul militant Liyaqat Shah.




"When I talk about revoking AFSPA, you don't want to take the risk, but you hang Afzal (Guru). Why don't you have the courage to revoke AFSPA... After hanging of Afzal Guru, you cannot bring him back, but after removal of AFSPA, you can reimpose it", Omar said while replying to debate on demand for grants in the Legislative Assembly.

Omar said "when we talk about AFSPA, we were told you are pushing the state to danger-- I do not understand when we are ready for experiment in J&K--why there is always pick and choose-- when this government shouted and screamed that by hanging Afzal Guru the situation in J&K state will deteriorate you ignored that-- that was your right".
