Srinagar: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has said it is “misplaced arrogance” on the part of political leaders who suggest that the next general election in the country would be a “two-horse race”.
“There is a fine line between talk to boost cadre moral and misplaced arrogance. To suggest that next election is 2 (two) horse race is the la(t)ter,” Omar wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.com.
The Chief Minister was apparently referring to the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls in the country which many see as a direct fight between ruling Congress and opposition BJP.
Omar also questioned the accuracy of polls conducted through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
“Every time I see twitter & FB polls, I’m reminded of @ImranKhanPTI. If social media users elected leaders, he (Imran Khan) would have been leading Pakistan,” he posted.
