Srinagar, June 19 (UNI) Former chief minister and National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah on Monday taunted the continuation of central rule in Jammu and Kashmir and said democracy ends where J&K begins.

“Democracy is in our veins, it is in our culture’; ‘India is the mother of democracy’; ‘India is the temple of democracy’. Great sounding words that the international community lap up & regurgitate ad-nauseam,” Omar tweeted. “Meanwhile J&K completes 5 years under central rule today. Democracy ends where J&K begins.”

It has been five years since Jammu & Kashmir saw an elected government. The last time the elections for the erstwhile state legislature were held was in 2014.

Political resentment is brewing in J&K for not holding assembly elections. All the political parties are seeking early elections in J&K.
