Situation In Kashmir Not Conducive For Polls: Omar

JAMMU 9 JULY 2018: National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today reiterated his demand for dissolution of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and said the situation in Kashmir is not conducive for polls.

His party, however, would take part in the democratic exercise whenever it is held, he added.

The National Conference has gone on record to demand the dissolution of the assembly. It is the cure for all the rumours about horse trading, splitting of political parties and government formation,” Abdullah told reporters here.

We will contest the elections whenever they are held. The reality is that the situation in Jammu may be conducive for polls but the situation in Kashmir is very grave, the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister added.

The NC, Abdullah said, does not demand immediate elections as it understands that it will take time to create a conducive climate.

When asked whether the NC would move the Supreme Court for dissolution of the assembly, he said it is something that the party has not yet decided.
