National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also criticised the authorities in Punjab for not making emergency evacuation arrangements for injured soldiers at the scene of deadly suicide attack in Pathankot.
Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for talking about Yoga at a time when an encounter with terrorists was raging on at Pathankot Air Base
"Business as usual is all well and good but a speech about Yoga while an encounter rages at an Air Base in #Pathankot seems totally out of sync," Mr Abdullah wrote on Twitter.
He was referring to the Prime Minister's address at a Yoga conference in Karnataka.
He also criticised the authorities in Punjab for not making emergency evacuation arrangements for injured soldiers at the scene of deadly suicide attack in Pathankot.
"Really? A 24 hour long operation and we don't have any critical care ambulances for our brave soldiers?" he said.
He was responding to reports that an injured NSG jawan was rushed to a hospital in a car.
He also expressed condolences over the death of security force personnel in the Pathankot attack.
"Sorry to hear about the deaths of our brave security force personnel in the #PathankotAttack. Prayers for the deceased & their families. RIP," he said.
