No post-poll alliance with BJP, says Omar
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday ruled out post-poll alliance with BJP given its stand on issues like Article 370, Uniform Civil Code and Babri Masjid as also with any other party. Talking to reporters on the eve of results to the 87- member state assembly, he said, “Clearly, no single party is going to form a government on its own. What remains to be seen is how close to these so-called exit polls, the actual number stacks up.” Omar further said “In the Parliament elections, I held three assembly constituencies -- all 3 in Srinagar. Two of them were hit by floods. If we extrapolate that result with the resultant post-flood anger, perhaps I should have only one constituency,” he said.
