If Mehbooba regrets alliance with BJP, can go back to people for fresh polls: Omar

New Delhi, Jan 18: With no breakthrough in sight over the government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah took a dig at Peoples Democratic Party alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party and has called for fresh elections.

Abdullah said, "If Mehbooba Mufti can't rise to the occasion she should end PDP's alliance with the BJP based on PDP's alleged reservations and regrets over the previous ten months and we can go back to the people again for fresh elections."

Governor's Rule was imposed in the state with effect from January 8, a day after Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's death, as the PDP and BJP, alliance partners in state government since March 1, 2015, failed to stake claim for formation of a new dispensation.

The PDP Core Group also held a meeting on Sunday and indicated it was veering to the idea of forming a coalition government with BJP, but Mehbooba Mufti told the meeting that she was in no hurry to take over as chief minister.
