Why no J&K assembly polls, questions Omar

New Delhi, Mar 10: Elections for the Jammu and Kashmir assembly, which was dissolved after the ruling coalition between the BJP and the PDP fell apart, will not be held along with the Lok Sabha polls, the EC announced on Sunday.
Elections in the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Sikkim will however be held simulatenously with the Lok Sabha polls.
Questioning the poll panel’s decision to not announce elections in the Valley, NC leader Omar Abdullah 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?
“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,” Abdullah said.
Slamming BJP-PDP for mishandling J&K, he said that elections in J&K were held in 2014 despite devastating floods.
