‘Had Farooq Abdullah not contested the elections in 1996, Kuka Parrey would have been JK CM’

Srinagar: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that had Farooq Abdullah and National Conference not contested the election in 1996, notorious militant turned renegade Kuka Parrey would have been the chief minister of the state.

“Nobody can deny this or even I can’t prove it, this is my belief that if Farooq Sahab and NC would not have contested 1996 elections then Kuka Parray would have been J&K CM. Whether anybody accepts this or not it is up to them,” Omar said

The NC leader made the remarks while talking to reporters on the sidelines of a rally in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

He also  said Governor Satya Pal Malik’s job was not to interfere in state politics but to make the situation favourable for the elections so that people are able to take part in electoral process again.
