Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday joined the Congress and the BJP bandwagons and termed AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation as Delhi Chief Minister a political drama for vote-bank politics.
“He (Kejriwal) should have waited for Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung’s assent on the Jan Lokpal Bill before introducing it in the Assembly. His only aim was to score some political gains,” Omar told reporters after inaugurating winter sports festival in North Kashmir.
Kejriwal had on Friday resigned as the Delhi CM after his move to table the Jan Lokpal Bill in the Assembly failed. The LG had advised the Speaker of the House against moving the Bill.
Both the Congress and the BJP had termed Kejriwal’s resignation a “drama” for political gains in the forthcoming parliamentary polls in the country.
Omar said there was no need for the AAP chief to pass the Lok Janpal Bill in such a hurry. “He should have waited for LG’s assent before introducing the Bill,” the CM said.
