Srinagar, June 20: National Conference (NC) leader Omar Abdullah on Wednesday called for immediate dissolution of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and holding of fresh elections in the state.
“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.
The former chief minister was reacting to BJP leader and former deputy chief minister (DCM) Kavinder Gupta’s reported statement that his party was “working on something”.
“I don’t think a new government will be formed anytime soon. Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it,” Gupta had reportedly said.
