As the working president of NC, Omar Abdullah endorsed the party patron's statement, he was attacked by the BJP spokesman, GVL Narasimha Rao, who tweeted to Omar: "Please stop this drama".
Mattu said the NC chief stated that Lone should not forget that he belonged to the party which had rejected the two-nation theory. "We need to focus on the unfortunate developments in #SunjwanArmyCamp & not get distracted by misplaced slogans", he wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.com.
