Omar Abdullah ‘furious’ over a Journalist for ‘breaching’ his trust

Srinagar, Aug 3, : Former Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Saturday expressed resentment and came down heavily on one of his Journalist ‘friend’ for breaching his trust by sending screen shots of their private conversation to his organization.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“Had an exchange with a journalist which was expressly off the record. The exchange took place over twitter direct messages. 36 hours later the conversation was sent back to me as a screen shot of our chat. So much for respecting journalistic practices,” Omar Tweeded.

He added: “When I confronted the person with the screen shot the reply I got was “twitter must have done this & circulated it”. Yup, I’m an idiot & will certainly believe Twitter released a screen shot of the conversation.”

“The conversation was a pretty innocuous one but that’s not the point. If you can’t respect a confidence don’t expect any contact or access what so ever. Now go explain that to the organisation you work for.”

Majority of his followers while expressing sympathies with Omar Abdullah suggested him not to trust present day “degrading” Journalists. “To have a private conversation with a Journalist is like kissing a Scorpian thinking it is not going to sting you,” responded a netizen to him.

Omar Abdullah- a tech savvy is being followed by vast chunk of people on Twitter.
