Don’t expect any peace in the region till the issue of kashmir is not resolved.

Of course he has toughest challenges to face as CM of J&M, however he is young, and he has got a vision for the people of the state.

It is true that he is overburdened by the responsibilities of various different portfolios under his belt, and for his humble political experience it is a daunting task to face the political storm and personal allegations. The current crisis is a test of character for him. When he said he was resigning, I think, he may have forgotten for a while that he was CM with big responsibilities and he should not have succumbed to the mounting pressure. It was the personal allegation hurt him most, and maybe he thought to stand for what he morally believes. So he should not have any regrets for having been emotionally given up for a while.

And when Omar’s grandpa tried to widen his wings, what Nehru did is history…!!
and about chewing the stuffs,.. even the teethless daddhus in seventies, eighties and even ninties are chewing it with so much ease, so give a chance for a youth with his 32 teeth…
…and the move what Omar did by resigning, is not an emotional step, but mere lesson for all those criminals, who still clings on the power, even after getting proved to be guilty…
Am not backing him, we need some young, active, unbiased, lead-through-example blood to clean up the carcass that corroded our democracy…
God bless India…

@Omar Abdullah is irrelevant. He is not supported by Kashmiris. He is an puppet of Delhi and has no standing in the valley”
– Posted by Moin Ansari

Moin Ansari: CM Omar Abdullah is an elected leader and the election was fair with good turnout. Does that not mean the opposite of what you are saying?, meaning Omar has good standing in the valley and is supported by the Kashmiris? Are you used to the leaders who stands in the street and raise Pakistani flag and burn Indian flag raise anti-India slogans? The leader who cannot talk to Delhi is of zero value to kashmiris.

But tell me this: Where are you hiding the leader who you think has good standing with the Kashmiris? There exists no such leader. Omar is what Kashmiris chose so just suck it up. I see no logic in your allegations.

I’m sure any man of good moral character would have done so, probably even i would have done the same if i were in his place.. No doubt he hasnt done much or achieved much after he took over as the chief minister, we could surely give the poor guy a chance and space to breathe.

Just hanging in there could be seen as a ‘success’ especially given his willingness to resign almost on cue.

He is not young, just younger compared to others of his tribe. So to suggest, as some have, that he is cracking up because of his age is unfair as well as inaccurate.

But yes the grandson of Sher-e-Kashmir is also the son of Farooq Abdullah, and he runs a family firm/party, so we shall just have to wait and see which way the rookie crumbles.

She behaves like a hooligan, disrupts the house proceeding and physically attacks people.

Govt should educate these people on civic norms.
