SRINAGAR: National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said  the Election Commission seems to be in no hurry to conduct the assembly polls in Jammu and Kashmir and manages to find new excuses to delay the elections.

Abdullah wrote on Twitter “When asked about assembly elections in JK, the chief election commissioner acknowledged a ‘vacuum that needs to be filled’. Yet surprisingly the @ECISVEEP seems to be in no hurry to conduct elections, on the contrary they manage to find new excuses to delay polls.”

He was referring to the comments made by Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar at a presser in New Delhi where he acknowledged that there is  “a vacuum that needs to be filled” in Jammu and Kashmir.

Omar said, “It has been eight years since the last assembly elections were conducted in JK, and five years since it had an elected government,” he said, adding that it’s plainly obvious the BJP in JK is terrified of facing the people but it isn’t the job of the Election Commission to give the BJP a shield to cower behind.
