National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah said on Wednesday the Modi government had “consciously disenfranchised” the people in Jammu and Kashmir by not holding the Assembly election on time.

 

The former chief minister was referring to Modi’s appeal to several personalities to help increase the voter turnout in the general election.

“The right to choose an elected government, as opposed to being governed by a hand picked nominee of the central government, is the hallmark of the sort of democracy you are tweeting about,” the NC leader said, appealing to the Prime Minister to give the people of the state an opportunity to exercise their democratic right by way of holding the Assembly polls.
