Srinagar: Former Chief Minister and National Conference president Omar Abdullah on Friday accused government of playing partisan politics to curry favour with the “ruling party and their stooges.”
“Shame on this administration for playing partisan politics to curry favour with the ruling party & their stooges. These parties couldn’t win seats so now they are using money/muscle/threats & government coercion to make up the numbers. So much for “democracy has won”!” Omar said in a tweet.
Tagging a picture in which president of JK Apni Party Syed Altaf Bukhari is seen greeting a DDC poll winner from “National Conference” into the JKPA party, Omar said: “This explains why our leaders in Shopian district are being put under “preventive arrest” by the police. J&K police & the administration are facilitating horse trading & defections. The woman shown here joining the BJP’s B-team contested & won elections on a NC mandate.” (GNS)
