Danger in Boycotting J&K Assembly Polls, it Could be Repeat of What Happened in Lok Sabha Elections: Omar Abdullah


New Delhi: National Conference (NC) Vice-President and MP Omar Abdullah on Friday spoke about the danger of boycotting elections. At an event, he said, “There’s danger in boycotting polls. If there’s a boycott, then what happened in parliamentary polls will happen in Assembly polls too.”

Abdullah was probably referring to how the BJP managed to secure three of the six Lok Sabha seats in the state. While the three seats in the Valley went to the NC, the saffron party bagged the two Jammu seats as also the sole seat in Ladakh.

Omar Abdullah said that in Assembly elections, “there’ll be a BJP MLA from Tral. They (BJP) have their eye on some constituencies here.”
