Omar, Mehbooba congratulate Malik for ‘not looking to Delhi’


SRINAGAR: NC vice-president Omar Abdullah and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday congratulated Governor Satya Pal Malik for not “looking to Delhi” on Government formation in the State and stopping the installation of a BJP Government.

“My compliments to Governor Malik for not looking to Delhi & for not taking their instructions thereby stopping the installation of a Government of the BJP & it’s proxies formed by horse trading, defections & use of money,” Omar wrote on his Twitter handle.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Mehbooba Mufti said it was good to see that the Governor refused to “take dictation from Delhi”.

“Leaving aside the fax machine fiasco, good to see that Governor Sb refused to take dictation from Delhi, rather opted for dissolution of assembly. This could be unprecedented, given the story of democracy in the State,” she said.

Mehbooba Mufti said she will go to people’s court against the governor’s decision to dissolve the assembly instead of fighting it out in a court of law.
The PDP leader tweeted: “Some sincere suggestions from well-wishers for me to go to court against governor’s dissolution of Assembly. PDP, NC, INC had come together to safeguard state interests. It is my considered opinion that we must go to people’s court which is superior to any other forum.”
