Omar Abdullah Predicts BJP’s Failure in IIOJK Lok Sabha Election

Srinagar, Omar Abdullah, Vice President of the National Conference in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), has stated that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has no chance of success in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the territory. His comments suggest a challenging road ahead for the BJP in this region.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Abdullah, speaking to journalists in Pulwama, noted that the BJP, while active in the region, is contesting elections under the banner of other parties. He emphasized that the National Conference is poised to win all three Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir.

Omar Abdullah pointed out that the BJP does not use its official party symbol in Jammu and Kashmir, instead opting for symbols like cricket bats and apples. He referred to the party’s use of its so-called “A, B teams” in the region. He mentioned that the BJP is backing a candidate in the Islamabad-Rajouri constituency, but Abdullah believes this candidate still has no chance of winning.

Regarding the BJP’s claim of securing 400 seats in the upcoming elections, Abdullah remarked that the BJP should focus first on retaining the seats in Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh before aiming for such high targets.

These statements by Omar Abdullah indicate a complex political landscape in IIOJK, where the BJP’s influence is limited, and the National Conference remains a strong force. The ongoing dynamics between political parties in the region reflect the broader challenges facing the BJP as it seeks to expand its presence in the territory.
