Omar Abdullah alleges J-K Govt sabotaging ‘simultaneous elections’


SRINAGAR — National Conference Vice-President Omar Abdullah on Monday accused J&K Government of sabotaging the simultaneous conduct of Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

“It is very sad that the government of Jammu and Kashmir sabotaged the simultaneous conduct of Lok Sabha and Assembly elections here. They don’t want people to have their own elected government,” Omar Abdullah said while talking to reporters in south Kashmir’s Kulgam.

He, however, expressed hope that the Supreme Court had already directed the Central government to hold Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir by or before September 30, 2024.

The former chief minister of Jammu & Kashmir said that the National Conference will announce the candidates for Lok Sabha elections at an “appropriate time”. “NC will announce the list of candidates at an appropriate time. Today from the southern district of Kulgam, our party has started the election campaign,” he said.

Hitting out at the BJP, the NC leader said, “It is the age-old method of the saffron party to target minorities during elections. CAA is aimed for the same to target not only Muslims but also other minorities living in the country.”
