Omar still hopeful

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has made a last ditch attempt to convince Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold assembly elections in the state. He has urged him to let the people choose their government in a democratic way by paving way for holding assembly elections in the state.
“The right to choose an elected government, as opposed to being governed by a handpicked nominee of the central government, is the hallmark of the sort of democracy you are tweeting about. Please give us our democratic right to choose our own government,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
National Conference vice-president is aware about the fact that if the assembly elections are held along with the parliamentary polls in the state it would help his party to emerge as one of the main contenders to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir and delay means that other parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party, would get a chance to regroup and could give a fight to the NC in forthcoming polls.
Earlier this week Election Commission of India announced that Assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir cannot be held due to security reasons. But many people are asking if the Lok Sabha polls can be held why can’t Assembly elections be held in the state?
Despite situation not being conducive, Governor’s administration held Panchayat and ULB polls across J&K. Very importantly these polls did not witness any violence. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Governor Satya Pal Malik for holding Panchayat and ULB polls successfully. Prime Minister described holding these elections as the victory of democracy in the state.
According to the media reports special observers are likely to visit the state in a day or two and they would assess the situation for holding the assembly polls in the state. Omar by appealing to the Prime Minister has made an attempt to tell the special observers that assembly polls can be held in the state and they should come for the rescue of the mainstream parties in Jammu and Kashmir.
