JKNPP demands resignation of Omar Abdullah

Jammu: Accusing the NC-Congress coalition government in the state of surrendering before anti-national elements, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) today demanded immediate resignation of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.

"This is obvious from the fact that the Chief Minister surrendered to the dictate of the terrorists not to hoist national flag in Lal Chowk for seeking their support not to disturb R-day function at Bakshi Stadium on January 26 this year", JKNPP Chairman Bhim Singh said in a statement here.

The state government has lost its morale and constitutional rights with this hidden packed agreement with the terrorists, he said, adding therefore, the Chief Minister must tender his resignation.

Alleging that the Abdullah government has failed miserably on all fronts, Singh said the Shopian incident is a living example in which the state government failed to trace out the culprits.

The JKNPP Chief asked AICC President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to rethink their coalition with NC.
