Srinagar, Apr 4: A day after, Peoples Democratic Party president, Mehbooba Mufti announced that her party would field the candidates from all Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir, National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah on Thursday tried to send a message that NC and Congress are two faces of a same coin.

Omar responded by saying the PDP is not keeping to an earlier agreement made for the 2020 local elections.
“Mehbooba’s announcement seems to have put Omar in a tricky situation.
He (Omar) was hoping that NC would get the support of PDP and Congress on all the three seats and it could make things easier for NC but his calculation has failed,” an analyst told Early Times.
He said, “Now, Omar is trying to keep the Congress in good books as he is aware that if the leaders of the grand old party too decide to go solo in Kashmir it could make the scenario more complex.”
“Omar had made very quick moves hoping that he would succeed in pressurizing PDP and would make it fall in the line, but it did not happen,” the analyst added.
