Congress gave BJP simple walkover in JK: Omar

Srinagar, May 2: Former chief minister and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Thursday lashed out at the Congress party over its approach towards Jammu and Kashmir.
“It says a lot about the Congress party & its approach to J&K. There hasn’t been a single election meeting by its leadership,” Omar said in a tweet.
He said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah did not address the election rallies in the valley but they have not ignored the state either.
“Contrast this with the number of rallies addressed by Modi & Amit Shah. They may not have come to the valley but they didn’t ignore the state,” Omar said.
He said that the BJP was simply given a walkover by the Congress in the state.
“The Congress was in with a fighting chance in 4 of the 6 seats and in 3 of these the BJP was the main opponent. It’s inexplicable how the BJP was simply given a walkover as far as the optics of the campaign were concerned,” Omar tweeted.
There are six Lok Sabha seats in Jammu and Kashmir – Baramulla, Jammu, Srinagar, Udhampur, Anantnag and Ladakh.
