Omar Abdullah has changed a lot in past few months, here is a picture proof
New Delhi : Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has changed a lot after he was put under the house arrest during the scrapping of Article 370 and abrogation of the state into two union territories.
One of his pictures, believed to be clicked recently, is going viral on the social media these days. In the picture he looks completely unrecognizable.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also shared the image on her Twitter and mentioned that she could not recognize him.
Sharing the picture, she wrote: "Am feeling sad... unfortunate that this is happening in our democratic country. When will this end?"
"I could not recognise Omar in this picture," she added.
Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress was one of the political parties who had strongly opposed the move, with Rajya Sabha MP Derek O'Brien accusing the BJP-led centre of "throwing the Constitution into the dustbin".
The picture also drew reaction from Mehbooba Mufti, who is also under detention, but is being operated by her daughter, Iltija Mujti.
"To those treating OmarAbdullah's illegal & prolonged detention with nonchalance, would serve you well to remember he's been in solitary confinement away from family & loved ones since 6 months. Physical appearances & tweeting are the least of his concerns," the tweet read.

Hundreds of key political leaders were also detained during the move and were put under house arrest to ensure peace in the valley. The government, which has come under fire from opposition parties for the detention of senior political leaders, has said these restrictions are intended to maintain order and prevent terror attacks.
