Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday accused the Centre of not doing much for return of Kashmiri Pandits to the Valley.

"Much was expected of the current government where all others were accused of paying only lip service but nothing changed," Omar wrote on Twitter on the 26th anniversary of exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley.

He said another year has passed with no progress "in bringing back the displaced Kashmiri Pandits. Words sound even more hollow".

"All we can do is recommit ourselves to do what we can to keep the spirit of Kashmiriyat alive in the hope that Kashmir will be complete soon," he added.

The working president of National Conference said he knows the fear of not seeing his home again as his family had left Kashmir in similar circumstances.

"My family left under somewhat similar circumstances so I know the fear of not seeing home again, though mine was short lived," he said.
