Omar urges people to vote against communalism

As polling began for two Lok Sabha seats in the state, regional National Conference leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah Thursday urged the people to vote against the communalism, in an apparent reference to the BJP. 

“To all my @JKNC_ colleagues & workers in Jammu, Rajouri & Poonch districts please vote & use your vote to send a message against communalism, against fear & against the broken promises of the last 5 years. Vote for Raman Bhalla (Congress candidate) & send him to the Lok Sabha to fight for J&K,” he tweeted.

Omar also urged the people of north Kashmir to go out and vote. “To all the voters in Baramulla, Kupwara & Bandipore districts please go out & vote. Your vote is an opportunity to choose a representative who will espouse our causes & fight our fights in the Lok Sabha for the next 5 years so choose wisely. #VoteHal #halhihalhai,” he said in another tweet.

Polling for the first phase of Lok Sabha elections started for the Baramulla and Jammu Lok Sabha segments on Thursday morning.
