The former chief minister and National Conference (NC) Vice president, Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that the parties who boycotted the recently held ULB and upcoming Panchayat polls won’t give Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) a walkover in the assembly elections.
Omar was reacting to a statement made by BJP General Secretary, Ram Madhav over two regional parties who boycotted the elections including NC and PDP regarding their demand of dissolving assembly in Jammu and Kashmir, which continued to remain under suspended animation from July this year.
NC Vice president in a tweet said that BJP has got the control of a handful of towns and cities as NC and PDP stayed away from the polls and due to the poor performance of Congress, who fought the elections.
He asked Madhav that “do you really think that NC and PDP will give a walkover in the assembly polls.”
“You got the control of a handful of towns & cities because NC & PDP stayed away (and the Congress did such a poor job of putting up a fight) do you really think we will give you a walkover in the Assembly polls?,” Omar tweeted.
