New Delhi, Jan. 15 (ANI): National Conference (NC) working president Omar Abdullah on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Lahore last month would have been an ‘unqualified success’ had the terror attack at the Pathankot Air base not taken place.
“Had the Pathankot attack not happened, Prime Minister Modi’s trip to Lahore would have been an unqualified success,” Omar Abdullah said.
“In the shadow of Pathankot, to expect a normal dialogue to take place between the two countries is perhaps asking too much,” he added.
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir further said that Prime Minister Modi can’t treat Pakistan like other countries, adding that the relationship with the latter is really unstable.
On the current tussle between the PDP- BJP over government, he said, “We have no government so to speak in the state. There is an uncertainty that whether the coalition will come together again and re-form the elected government.”
“In Jammu and Kashmir, this is the second time in a year that we find ourselves in situation where we are ruled by the governor rather than by an elected government,” he said.
“I am hoping that sooner rather than later the two allies can work out an amicable arrangement and resume government in the state,” he added. (ANI)
