Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday said the four years of UPA-II government at the Centre has witnessed a lot of positive work. He, however, also admitted that scandals were a setback to it.

"Because we focus on the negative, I often think, we ignore the positive. There is a lot of good that this government has done," Omar said.

"No doubt there were setbacks. The biggest area of concern has been the succession of scandals that have been unearthed," he added.

Omar was responding to a question about his assessment of the four-years of UPA-II regime. National Conference was not part of UPA-I.

The Chief Minister said, “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi had clearly identified the areas where the government at the Centre has achieved "considerable success".

"As we come closer to the elections, we will take that positive track record and go back to the people," the Chief Minister said.
