The CPI(M) on Wednesday distanced itself from Chhattisgarh Chief Minister and Congress chief Bhupesh Baghel’s latest insinuation that the discharge of Jammu and Kashmir’s former Chief Minister Omar Addullah from preventive detention was as a consequence of his relationship with insurgent Congress chief Sachin Pilot.
CPI(M) Central Committee member and MLA from Jammu and Kashmir MY Tarigami countered Baghel’s assertion saying it was off base.
Release of Dr. Farooq Abdullah, @OmarAbdullah was neither a favor nor a charity from the Govt. In reality it was untenable for Govt to defend their detention in courts. It is unlucky and uncalled for to hyperlink their launch to latest political developments in Rajasthan.

Baghel had attributed Abdullah’s launch by the Jammu and Kashmir Administration to him being brother-in-law of Sachin Pilot, who has led a revolt of Congress MLAs in Rajasthan placing the Congress authorities in jeopardy.
Baghel had alleged of rising proximity between Pilot and BJP.
Tarigami tweeted: “Release of Dr Farooq Abdullah @Omar Abdullah was neither a favour nor charity from Govt. In reality it was untenable for Govt to defend their detention in courts.”
“It is unfortunate and uncalled for to link their release to recent political developments in Rajasthan,” Tarigami added.
Omar has introduced to sue Baghel in a courtroom of regulation for his defamatory assertion.
