SRINAGAR — Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said that judging the results of the INDIA bloc, if the situation continues to be like this in future, the opposition alliance will not be able to win. He was replying to questions related to the results of four state assembly elections in which the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swept Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
“Judging the results of INDIA alliance in the state elections, if the situation is like this in the future, we cannot win,” Omar Abdullah said as per the news agency KNS while speaking to reporters.
Speaking on the performance of the Congress in Madhya Pradesh, Abdullah said that the Congress should have given some seats to its INDIA bloc partner, Samajwadi Party to contest.
“Either the Congress has not been able to understand the ground situation in Madhya Pradesh. What harm could have happened if they had given 5 to 7 seats to Akhilesh Yadav? What storm could have blown? What have they won now? The results are in front of everyone now,” Omar said.
On whether his party will be contesting with the INDIA bloc for the state assembly elections in J&K, Abdullah said, “The NC will be standing on its own. We will fight elections of our own,” Omar said.
