SRINAGAR: As BJP and PDP reached an alliance, former chief minister Omar Abdullah today said it was a tie-up between North and South Poles and questioned "where are the celebrations on the streets of Jammu and Kashmir".   

The NC leader also claimed that with the sealing of the alliance the capital of the state has shifted to Nagpur, an oblique reference to the RSS headquarter.          

"With this hug (between PDP chief Sayeed and Prime Minister Modi) the South Pole and the North Pole met and the capital of J-K shifted to Nagpur," Omar wrote on Twitter.

Omar, the National Conference (NC) working president, questioned where are the celebrations on the streets of the state?            

"As all the expert J&K commentators will not tire telling us that this Modi-Mufti accord is the best thing since sliced bread I must ask where are the celebrations on the streets of J&K? There should have been a spontaneous eruption of joy on both sides of the mountains," he said.      

He claimed the reaction of the people of Kashmir to the alliance was "generally muted".           

"I am sure a few crackers will be organised between now and Sunday (when Sayeed takes oath) but the general reaction is decidedly muted. #modimuftiaccord," he said.    

Referring to the speech of Prime Minister Modi in Lok Sabha, Omar said, "Strong words from @PMOIndia in Parliament today. Now to see them translated into action because as is often said - talk is cheap," he said.
