J and K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah hits out at opponents for demanding polls in flood hit state
Bandipora, Nov 22 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday hit out at his opponents for demanding elections in the state in wake of massive floods. Abdullah alleged that central ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), opposition Congress party and state’s main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), didn’t care for distressed people. Hundreds of people were killed and thousands of villages were devastated by the worst flooding in decades in the Kashmir valley. Roads in Srinagar, Kashmir’s main city, were transformed into stagnant canals strewn with wreckage, trash and dead animals. Meanwhile, Abdullah also replied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s allegation that state government was enmeshed in corruption. Abdullah also gave reasons for not implementing Food Security Act in the state, a flagship scheme of the previous central government.
