SRINAGAR: As PDP and BJP attempted to break the deadlock over government formation in Jammu & Kashmir, state's former chief minister Omar Abdullah today appeared to doubt the possibility of revival of the alliance, quipping "picture abhi baki hai dost".

'Committed' BJP Hopes JK Deadlock Ends Soon

The tech-savvy politician, who returned here after his meeting with Governor N N Vohra yesterday in Jammu, remained quiet through the day as PDP and BJP got busy fine-tuning how go to about forming the government.

While reacting to reports quoting BJP's interlocutor on Kashmir Ram Madhav as saying that final negotiations would be conducted after PDP Legislature Party meeting on Thursday, Omar, known for his sharp wit, was quick to quip "picture abhi baki hai dost" (the final picture is yet to unfold)", apparently taking a leaf out of Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Om Shanti Om'.

"It's becoming increasingly clear that in the choice between principles and power, Mehbooba has opted for power," he tweeted.

Wondering where did Mehbooba draw her "satisfaction" from, Omar said PDP must come clean and let people know what concession Mehbooba sought from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and what assurances, if any, she received from him.

"Its not enough for her to come out from meeting the Prime Minister and say she is satisfied. Her satisfaction is immaterial if she left empty handed," he said in a series of tweets.
