Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference vice president and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said that governor should come clean on the allegations of horse-trading and distribution of money.
Addressing a press conference in Srinagar, Omar said that governor should name the people who were distributing money to buy MLA’s for the new alliance.
He said the people should know who were buying MLAs. “It should be made public. Who was making use of money. Where from this money came and at whose behest. People want to know the answer,” Omar asked?
He said that although supporting PDP was against the National Conference’s interests but the new allaince was being forged to protect the state’s special status.
He said it is for the PDP to decide whether it will take legal recourse against governor’s decision. “At the most Iam not a party to it but we would provide moral support. Because the challenge is to be mounted, they are the ones who have to take it.”
Responding to a question about elections in the state, Omar said: “Assembly elections should be held after Panchayat polls, if not before parliament at least with parliment elections.”
