Former Jammu And Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has written a letter which he shared on his official twitter handle that he is vacating his government accommodation at Gupukar road, Srinagar

“My letter to the J&K administration. I will be vacating my government accommodation in Srinagar before the end of October. The point to note is that contrary to stories planted in the media last year I received no notice to vacate & have chosen to do so of my own accord,” he tweeted.

The National Conference vice president said he is searching for a suitable accommodation which may take eight to 10 weeks in view of the constraints caused by the COVID pandemic.

“Consequent upon the change in entitlements for former CMs of J&K some months ago, I now find myself in an unauthorised occupation of this accommodation as no attempt has been made to regularise the allotment to me on security or any other grounds.This is a situation that is unacceptable to me,” he said.

He had informed the administrative secretary concerned about his decision to vacate the Gupkar residence that was alloted to him first in 2002 as Member of Parliament from Srinagar and then after taking over as chief minister of the erstwhile state from 2009 to 2015.
