Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday praised the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) 'effective opening attacks' on the government over the Lokpal bill.

“One has to accept that the BJP makes very effective opening attacks in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha,” Omar Abdullah tweeted.

In the past few years, he has been the severest critic of the party and even taken on its senior leaders like L.K. Advani. He was a minister in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.

Omar Abdullah is heading a coalition government in J and K comprising his National Conference and the Congress. The NC is also an ally in the present Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) central government. His father Farooq Abdullah is a union cabinet minister.
