Ahead of elections, Omar Abdullah raises the bar of politics. He invited the selected workers of his Beerwah constituency for a Harissa and noon chai party at his residence in Srinagar on Thursday.
Soon after the party was over, the vice president National Conference Omar Abdullah reached out to his twitter handle out and shared the pictures. He wrote, “With some of my @JKNC_ workers & office bearers from my constituency. I had invited them home over harissa & noon chai (salt tea) to thank them for their support over the last 4 years.”
Omar is seen sitting in the middle of the pictures and posing amongst his workers. And soon after the tweet, a few of his followers were commenting and identifying the people amongst his workers happily which otherwise was not a norm. His followers were commenting positively.
The techie Omar, who is emerging as more vocal and dynamic on social networking site Twitter, creates news every day by reaching out to his twitter. He was the first from the Jammu and Kashmir politicians who dared to call the killing of seven civilians in Pulwama as a ‘massacre’. He mostly tweets about the situations but he remained tight-lipped when minor ‘militant’ Muddassar of Hajin was killed in an encounter. Even when he was posed with a question about the encounter he preferred to say he was ignorant of the incident.
Pertinently it was in 2014 when Omar Abdullah left his family bastion Ganderbal and decided to contest the elections from Beerwah and Sonwar constituencies. He was declared a winner from Beerwah but lost Sonwar.
Since then, Omar has been seen going to his constituency quite frequently and it is assumed that his voters are happy as he has become ready to go to person in the constituency.
Even after 2016 unrest in Kashmir when it was completely shut for at least six months and MLAs still don’t dare to go to visit their constituencies, it was only Omar Abdullah who was seen visiting his constituency quite frequently.
