Holding Timely Polls In Jammu And Kashmir Test For PM Modi: Omar Abdullah

New Delhi: 

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said on Monday that holding elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be a test of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's handling of Jammu and Kashmir over the last five years.

"Will the Modi government bow before those forces of separatism & terror that have always sought to disrupt/delay polls in J&K or will polls take place on schedule? The moment of truth for PM Modi's handling of Kashmir over the last 5 years," Mr Abdullah wrote on his Twitter handle.

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir was reacting to media reports that the Election Commission of India will take a call on holding Assembly polls together with the Lok Sabha election after a visit to the state this week.

Omar Abdullah said except for an odd by-election, all elections in Jammu and Kashmir since 1995-96 have been held as per schedule.

"Will PM Modi be able to keep to this schedule or will he accept he's totally mishandled J&K? The next few days will give us the answer," he added.
