Omar ultimatum to Cabinet sub-committee

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, relations between the ruling National Conference and the Congress coalition partners in Jammu and Kashmir have reached a new low.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, relations between the ruling National Conference and the Congress coalition partners in Jammu and Kashmir have reached a new low, with CM Omar Abdullah even serving an ultimatum to a Cabinet sub-committee headed by the latter to submit its report on the creation of new administrative units in the state within a week.

Stopping short of threatening to sacrifice even his government, Omar wrote on Twitter, “It’s unfortunate that this exercise has taken since June, but I am determined to complete this important public demand no matter what…. I rather reluctantly gave them this one week…no further extension”.
