Srinagar, March 3: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said it is high time that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asked the governor to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh elections.
“We are asking the PDP and the BJP, since you have failed to form a government in the state during the last two months, it is time you rose above party interest and asked the governor to dissolve the state assembly and hold fresh elections here,” Abdullah said.
“After Mufti Muhammad Sayeed passed away, we were told the government would be formed after the fourth day, then it was said it would be formed after the 40th day and then it was said it would be formed after the present parliament session ends,” the former chief minister said.
“It was immediately rejected. Now there is no question of offering such a support when RSS has opened offices at various places, including Srinagar,” the National Conference leader added.
