A day after BJP swept the assembly polls in the three Hindi heartland states, National Conference president and former chief minister Dr. Farooq Abdullah questioned the delay in holding assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

Talking to reporters in Delhi, Dr. Abdullah said people of the J&K Union Territory are also part of India and justice should be done to them accordingly.

Dr. Abdullah said, “elections have still not been held in Jammu and Kashmir. It’s been six to seven years. What is the reason? We are also part of India and we should get justice”.

Commenting on the results of the five assembly polls, Dr. Abdullah said parties in the INDIA alliance should start working harder in a synchronised manner. “Defeat and victory keep happening. We should learn from victories and defeats. This defeat will not make a difference to the INDIA alliance. We have to work harder. We have to work in synchronised manner. We have a long way to go”, Dr. Abdullah added.
