"It is fine that you have to create Telangana but don't do it in piecemeal. This way the agitations are being incentivized," Omar said.

He said giving in to the demand of creating a separate state in the backdrop of an agitation was a "dangerous thing". "An impression is going out that an agitation can lead to creation of a new state, be it in Bundelkhand, Maharashtra, Gorkhaland or in our state. What will you tell people of Jammu -- agitate for seven or eight years and you will get a separate state? This is a dangerous thing," he said.

"If there is a need to create new states, the job should be entrusted to the States Reorganization Commission,” the Chief Minister said.
