Can’t Expect Congress to Fight BJP With Its Leaders Busy in Infighting: Omar Abdullah

Abdullah, a former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, said the Congress party’s actions have a direct impact on every political party outside the BJP-led National Democratic Allaince (NDA) as almost 200 Lok Sabha seats see a direct contest between the Congress and the BJP.

Srinagar: It is too much to expect the Congress to take the fight to the BJP when its state leaders are too busy fighting amongst themselves, National Conference (NC) vice president Omar Abdullah said on Saturday after the resignation of Amarinder Singh as Punjab Chief Minister.

Abdullah, a former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, said the Congress party’s actions have a direct impact on every political party outside the BJP-led National Democratic Allaince (NDA) as almost 200 Lok Sabha seats see a direct contest between the Congress and the BJP.

In a series of tweets, he said, “I guess it’s too much to expect the Congress to take the fight to the BJP when its state leaders are too busy fighting amongst themselves.”

“Ordinarily I wouldn’t give a toss about the fratricide in the Congress party – their party, their business. However what the Congress does has a direct fallout for every political party outside the NDA orbit because almost 200 Lok Sabha seats see a direct BJP – Cong fight,” he added.

Congress veteran Amarinder Singh on Saturday resigned as the chief minister of Punjab, capping months of a power tussle that had polarised the ruling party in the state headed for elections in just about four months.

He submitted his resignation to Punjab Governor Banwarilal Purohit along with that of his council of ministers, his media advisor said. “..@capt_amarinder has met Punjab Governor and submitted his and his council of ministers’ resignation,” his media advisor said on Twitter.

Addressing the media at the Raj Bhavan gate, Amarinder Singh said, “I feel humiliated. Three CLP meetings held in two months. I decided this morning I was going to resign. Let them make whoever they trust the next CM. I spoke to the Congress President this morning.”

Clearing the air around his Congress membership, the Captain said, “I am in the Congress party. I will consult with my supporters and decide the future course of action.”
