Srinagar: Vice President of the National Conference (NC) Omar Abdullah on Sunday alleged that by not holding Assembly polls in the Jammu and Kashmir, Prime minister Naredra Modi has confessed his failure on a global stage.
Reacting to Chief Election Commissioner (CEC)’s announcement that Assembly elections in the state would not be held alongwith the Lok Sabha polls in the country, former Chief minister Omar said PM Modi has surrendered to Pakistan, to the militants & to the hurriyat. Well done Modi Sahib. 56 inch chest failed, he said.
Taking to micro-blogging site twitter Omar said “ Balakote & Uri are not symbols of PM Modi’s handling of national security, J&K is and look at the mess he has made there. The abject surrender to anti-India forces is a crying shame”.
He further said “ With the amount of international attention elections in J&K attract I never thought PM Modi would be willing to confess his failure on a global stage but we all make mistakes & that was mine.
“In 2014 we had Lok Sabha elections on time & assembly elections on schedule even after the most devastating floods. Shows how badly the BJP & earlier the BJP-PDP mishandled J&K, he tweeted.
Mr Omar said “First time since 1996 Assembly elections in J&K are not being held on time. Remember this the next time you are praising PM Modi for his strong leadership”.
He further tweeted “What happened to @rajnathsingh’s assurance to Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha as well as to the all party meeting recently in Delhi that all forces would be made available for simultaneous polls?”.
“In light of the failure to conduct assembly elections on time in J&K I’m retweeting my tweets from a few days ago. PM Modi has surrendered to Pakistan, to the militants & to the hurriyat. Well done Modi Sahib. 56 inch chest failed”, he said.
Omar said “It’s worth remembering that since 1995-96 Pakistan, militants & separatist have always tried to ensure elections don’t take place in J&K. Successive governments since H.D. Deve Gowda have ensured all attempts at disruption fail”.
