Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said the PDP’s review of the performance of its coalition with the BJP was a vindication of opposition charge that the government did “absolutely nothing” in the past 10 months.
“Effectively making our point that their government did absolutely nothing for 10 months,” Omar wrote on Twitter. The opposition National Conference working president was reacting to PDP statement that the party was reviewing the progress made on its ‘Agenda of Alliance’ with the BJP before taking a decision on continuation of the coalition with the national party.
“Why is BJP in a fix? PDP needs to explain why it surrendered these issues for 10 months and still praised coalition,” Omar said in response to media reports. Apparently referring to the PDP’s stand of addressing the external and internal dimensions of the Kashmir issue, Omar said both facets of the issue were playing up and there was confusion about both.
“Amazingly both the internal & external facets of J&K’s problems are playing up right now – confusion about Govt formation & Indo-Pak talks!” he said. “No arrest of Masood Azhar; no FS (Foreign Secretary) talks tomorrow, no government in J&K. Too many noes,” he added.
