Jammu, Nov 22: Traditional arch rivals, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah were found a platform of friendship after the Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik’s decision to dissolve the legislative state assembly.
On Thursday, both of them endorsed each other's view on Twitter apart from vent out their anger on the Governor’s decision. The new political crisis in Jammu and Kashmir was born out of the decision of Ms Mehbooba to stictch a partnership with Oman Abdullah to form a government in Kashmir. Malik dissolved the assembly shortly after Mehbooba wrote a letter to him staking claim to form the government in the state in alliance with the National Conference and the Congress party. However, Mehbooba said that she failed to get through the governor via fax and hence shared a copy of the letter on Twitter.
Taking to Twitter, Mehbooba expressed her gratitude to Omar for supporting her amid the political tension. "In my twenty-six-year-old career as a politician, I thought I had seen it all! But like they say never say never! Nevertheless, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to @OmarAbdullah and @Ambikasoni4 ji for helping us achieve the seemingly impossible," she tweeted.
Without much delay, Oman Abdullah responded on Twitter, "And I never thought I'd be retweeting anything you said while agreeing with you. Politics truly is a strange world. Good luck for the battle ahead. Once again the wisdom of the people will prevail." The PDP chief also replied to Omar's remarks with a light-hearted response, "Touche! On a lighter note, perhaps they should do away with fax machines and allow official communication via WhatsApp. Or maybe we should just gift them a new one." UNI
