New Delhi: The growing dissatisfaction against Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has started to cast shadow on the National Conference-Congress alliance. The Congress leaders in the state believe that the party’s continued support to Abdullah will erode its own vote bank in state.

A senior Congress leader said, “Omar should be given a strong warning that his immature statements are putting unnecessary hurdle in the functioning of alliance. The Congress also faces uneasy questions in this regard.”

While the development work has stalled in the state, the administration turns blind eye to the Congress leaders and workers, the Congress leader alleged. 

Omar ignores the advices of the Congress leaders as he enjoys full support from party high command. He is in direct touch with party president Sonia Gandhi, said the party sources.

However, Former Water Resource Minister and Pradesh Congress Committee President Prof. Saifuddin Soz palyed down any such development in the party.

“Party general secretary Rahul Gandhi’s recent visit to the state has boosted morale of the party workers,” he said.

Expressing unhappiness over the Omar’s arrogant attitude towards Congress workers, Former Chief Minister and Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has stopped visiting the state as his advices are not being incorporated by the state government.
