Mufti deliberately triggered poll remark row: Omar
Opposition National Conference on Thursday accused Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed of deliberately triggering a controversy by his remarks giving credit of successful polls to Pakistan and Hurriyat to avoid discussion on agenda for alliance government formulated by them. “You (Mufti Mohmmad Sayeed) did not do any mistake. You made that statement after much of thinking, deliberately, before the press, because you did not wanted that people should discuss CMP,” NC working president Omar Abdullah said in Legislative Assembly on Thursday.

“When you (Mufti Sayeed) released the agenda for alliance gave a statement...Most of the people were surprised...I thought he does not make any such statements, which he doesn’t think several times. But what happened that Mufti sahib gave such a statement concerning elections, and made BJP angry,” he said.

Omar alleged that the CM never wanted people to discuss that how this alliance was forged between BJP and PDP.

“You deliberately created that row, that we were forced not to talk about CMP nor alliance. Created a row and all were engaged in giving out their statements whether Paksitan has its hand in successful elections or not. Whether Geelani sahib helped you or not, and CMP -- your agenda for alliance was lost in that commotion,” he added.

Hitting out PDP for double standards, Omar said “People trust us on track record and credibility. On that you have got the power and promised them to come to their expectation. I want to know from you, on Governor’s address and CMP, why should people trust that.”  Blaming PDP of a U-turn, Omar said they changed their stance within few months. “You have no credibility. You have formed the government with the people against whom you raised fear psychosis among people during elections,” he added.
