People prefer Governor’s rule in J&K: Omar

Former Chief Minister and National Conference working president Omar Abdullah today said as People’s Democratic Party (PDP)-Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Government failed to deliver, people prefer Governor’s rule in the State. He asked Mehbooba Mufti to either form the Government or seek fresh mandate from the people.
While addressing a gathering in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district, Omar said that the biggest achievement of the PDP-BJP Government is that people today prefer Governor’s rule over elected Government. “I am astonished that people are not complaining about Governor’s rule. This is an ample proof that the BJP-PDP has failed in these 10 months because their absence is not being felt by the people. Not having a Minister is being liked by them as they say they didn’t do anything and Governor will do something. This is their achievement of 10 months that today people prefer Governor’s rule”, he said.
The former Chief Minister said that they (PDP) have 27 MLAs and there has been Governor’s rule twice in one year. “The alliance is still there but still there is no Government. They have double standards”, he said.
“It was surprising that people found the administration more responsive and effective under Governor’s rule than it was under the rule of the PDP-BJP Government – which is a tragic indictment of the PDP-BJP Government”, the NC leader said
Omar said that Mehbooba Mufti should form the Government or seek fresh mandate from the people.  “One day they say that the agenda of alliance has to be redrafted and next day they say it is sacred document and will take it forward. If you have to take it forward, for God’s sake Mehbooba Ji form the Government. We are not creating any hurdle in the Government formation. You come forward and form the Government. If your father didn’t reach to people in one year, you come forward and reach out to the people. And if you don’t have to form the Government, for God’s sake you suspend this Assembly and allow people to decide afresh”, he said.
