Will Do Every Bit to Get Statehood Back: Omar Abdullah

Srinagar, Oct 31: Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that Jammu and Kashmir National Conference will do every bit to get Statehood back either before elections or afterwards.

Speaking to reporters during his Karnah visit, Omar said “I won’t contest polls but NC will not leave space to others and will participate in every election. We will do every bit to get Statehood back to J&K whether it will materialize before elections or afterwards”.

“NC will participate in elections and will get Statehood back to J&K come what may,” former CM J&K asserted.

To a query he said the party will field a new candidate for north Kashmir’s Parliamentary seat as erstwhile MP’s health conditions does not permit him to reach out people. “Individuals cannot decide of their own. It is party that will take a call and nominate a new candidate for people. The discussions within the party will take place and party head will take a call on it,” he said.

When asked whether NC will fight Parliamentary polls jointly with other regional parties, he said there is no decision yet.  “There is no decision taken yet. So far elections are going to happen in 5 states, let the results come from there, so accordingly future course of action will be set,” he added.
