Former CM Abdullah calls for the immediate dissolution of the J&K Legislative Assembly


Following the imposition of Governor’s rule in the state Omar Abdullah, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister accused the BJP of trying to break other parties for political gains and called for the immediate dissolution of the J&K 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 horse trade for government formation,” he tweeted.

Abdullah reacted to the statement released by Kavinder Gupta, BJP leader and former deputy chief minister, ‘that his party was working on something’.

According to reports, former deputy CM said, “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.”

On the statement saying we are working on it, Abdullah asked on twitter “What do you mean ‘we are working on something’? The only ‘something’ would be to break other parties & make up the numbers to form a BJP Govt. Has the former DCM inadvertently spilled the beans?”
