Srinagar: Former chief minister and National Conference Vice president Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that after the defeat in Karnataka polls, BJP will have no courage to hold elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir has been without an elected government since June 2018, when the BJP withdrew support to Mehbooba Mufti’s People’s Democratic Party-led coalition government.

After the Karnataka poll results showed Congress winning, Omar hit out at BJP.

“Now there is no way BJP will have the courage to allow Assembly elections to take place in J&K any time soon ..,” Omar tweeted.

Another Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and Peoples Democratic Party president Mehooba Mufti said the Congress winning the Karnataka polls was not easy and hoped this is the start of a new beginning for India

“ Congratulations to @INCIndia (Congress) for sweeping Karnataka. Wasn’t easy given that BJP unleashed the most vicious communal campaign. The people of Karnataka have rejected division & bigotry. I hope this is the start of a new beginning for India,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, Congress leaders and workers in Srinagar celebrated the victory in Karnataka at the party headquarter.
