Omar Abdullah calls for dissolution of Jammu & Kashmir assembly, fresh elections in state


SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah today called for immediate dissolution of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and holding of fresh elections in the state.

In a surprise move, the BJP pulled out of the three-year-old ruling coalition with the PDP in the state that was placed under Governor’s rule this morning.

“The J&K state assembly should be dissolved immediately & fresh elections should take place as soon as appropriate. The former DCM has admitted that BJP can’t be trusted not to horsetrade for Govt formation (sic),” Omar tweeted.
