Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Vice President of the National Conference (NC), Omar Abdullah took strong exception on Saturday to a comment made by former state governor Satya Pal Malik in which Malik accused the NC and the PDP of succumbing to Pakistan's pressure.

Known otherwise for not losing his cool, Omar lashed out at Malik calling him an 'outright liar'.

In a recent comment, Malik said he had personally approached Omar and Mehbooba to persuade them to participate in the Panchayat elections, but they had refused to do so because of pressure from Pakistan.

"PM had said that we will conduct Panchayat elections (in J&K). I broke protocol & went to Omar Abdullah & Mehbooba Mufti's residence. They refused to participate under Pakistan's pressure. Terrorists also threatened yet election was held successfully", Malik said in a statement on Friday.

Reacting to this, Omar said on his widely followed Twitter handle, "Only naam ka satya not kaam ka. He never tires of lying. Lied to people of J&K before 5th August & lying now. Hiding behind walls of Raj Bhavan protected from defamation suits so feels emboldened to shoot his mouth off. Let him say all this when he is no longer governor & see".

Never in his political career has Omar used such strong words to condemn anyone in public life.
