Jammu: Stepping up attack over Chief
Minister Omar Abdullah`s statement in the assembly on the
crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, BJP on Saturday demanded that the
Congress snap ties with his National Conference and Governor`s
rule be imposed in the state.

"Congress leaders should shed their greed for beacon
vehicles and prove their nationalist credentials by snapping
ties with the NC in the state," BJP state spokesperson
Ramesh Arora told reporters here.

"The state has been pushed towards a constitutional
crisis due to the irresponsible and unconstitutional statement
of the Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and the Congress remained
mute spectator during the entire period," he alleged said.

The party said when the Constitution itself "has
cleared the relationship of the state with India, there seems
no justification for questioning the accession on one pretext
or the other".

Urging state Governor N N Vohra to take cognizance
of the Chief Minister`s statement in the Assembly, the
opposition party said he "should recommend to the Centre to
immediately sack Omar and impose Governor`s rule in the
state".
