New Delhi:

Renowned singer and Music composer Adnan Sami held a concert on the banks of Dal Lake in Srinagar on Saturday, has raged a heated word war on Twitter against former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah.

An ugly spat on twitter started when Omar Abdullah had retweeted a tweet saying the lack of attendees at the concert.

“Empty seats at Adnan Sami Concert and we are past the scheduled Start time. PR disaster for JK govt led by @MehboobaMufti,” the original tweet had posted with pictures of empty seats at the concert. Abdullah quoted the retweet with “That’s a real pity. I hope people have filled those seats now. For an evening they can let the music transport them to a more peaceful place.”

Adnan Sami awfully struck back and tweeted “Bro ur a former CM..U shouldn’t be so unnerved by a music concert. U obviously have bad sources who lie 2 U - HERE are d photos!! #GrowUp”

After that, Sami's reply forced Abdullah to asked him what makes him think he is 'unnerved'. “How does hoping you have a houseful suggest I’m unnerved? I’m glad people got to enjoy an evening of music. I used to like yours at one time,” he wrote. 

Then again Sami has bombarded Omar with a string of harsh words. “Oh please Omar! U retweeting ppls photos like a sadistic sore loser speaks volumes of ur lack of stature & pettiness. Up ur game- Its music!,” he wrote.

To end the tussle, Abdullah replied “Aren’t you a big enough star? Do you really need the column inches in a gossip piece “Omar-Adnan spar”? I don’t. Enjoy Srinagar. Good night.” 

Adnan couldn’t resist sending out another tweet. “Ur fickle mind shud know that its not about being a Star. It’s about coming together for the purpose of promoting peace, luv & harmony. GN,” he wrote.

“Like you said right in the beginning - I am a former CM & so I’ll ignore yr 7-8 insults in 3 tweets.Thanks for coming to Srinagar.Stay safe,” Abdullah said in his last tweet and Sami replied, “So you finally realised huh! Der aye durust aye.”

Throughout the tweet-war, Sami has been retweeting several pictures of his ‘housefull’ concert and tweets of people who are lashing out at Abdullah for his comments.

The tourism department has organized the concert in a bid to increase the number of tourist in the state.

Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju, several ministers of the Jammu and Kashmir government, and senior civil administration and police officials attended the concert.
