Former CM Omar Abdullah asked for fresh election in the state.

Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and vice president of National Conference Omar Abdullah lashed out at the centre for it’s decision to meet the Taliban in Moscow.

Taking to his Twitter handle Omar asked why Modi government was willing to hold “non-official” talks with the Taliban but refused to hold dialogue with “non-mainstream” parties in Jammu and Kashmir, “If “non-official” participation in a dialogue that includes the taliban is acceptable to the Modi government why not a “non-official” dialogue with non-mainstream stake holders in J&K? Why not a “non-official” dialogue centered around J&K’s eroded autonomy & its restoration?” he wrote.

According to media reports India will be participating in a meeting in Moscow on Afghanistan which will also be attended by representatives of Taliban but at a “non-official” level.
