Omar Abdullah pitches for ‘single-party' Govt in J&K

Tuesday, 08 January 2019 | PTI | Jammu

National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Monday strongly pitched for single-party Government in Jammu & Kashmir as "coalition culture has failed in the State".

"I want people of the State to elect a single party Government in Jammu & Kashmir, keeping in view the challenges and magnitude of problems faced to the people. Experiment of coalitions has not worked well in the State," he said at a function at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhavan here on Monday evening.

"In fact, the coalition culture has failed in various parts of the country as well and in a state like J&K, a stable and strong dispensation was of paramount importance to steer it out of the mess created during the past nearly four years," Abdullah said. The function was held to welcome PDP's general secretary and former IAS officer Mehboob Iqbal and Bhaderwah Municipal Council president Shahid Mougal into the NC. He claimed that the people, dejected by the PDP-BJP's misrule during over three years, are yearning for early elections to send out a terse message to the Centre about its misadventure by thrusting an "insensitive" and an "anti-poor Govt" upon the State.
