Maintain decorum: Omar tells Sangma
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said opposition-backed Presidential candidate PA Sangma should maintain decorum as he was contesting elections for the highest office of the country.
"Note to Mr Sangma - you are contesting elections to the highest office in the land, would it hurt you to maintain a measure of decorum?" Omar wrote on the micro-blogging site twitter.com.
Although Omar did not elaborate any further on the issue, the comment was apparently in response to Sangma`s reported remarks in Mumbai that Rashtrapati Bhawan was being used as a dumping ground for `failed` former finance minister Pranab Mukherjee.
"The Raisina Hill is being used as a dumping ground for the failed finance minister," Sangma told reporters yesterday at Mumbai while mobilising support for his Presidential bid.
Omar`s National Conference, which is part of the UPA at Centre and leads the coalition government with Congress in the state, has pledged support for Mukherjee`s candidature.
The Presidential Elections will be held on July 19.
