The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and national conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Thursday urged the people to come out in large numbers to cast their votes for peace, progress, and communal harmony.
In a series of tweets, Omar urged the people to go out and choose a representative who will espouse our causes and fight our fights in the Lok Sabha for the next 5 years.
“To all the voters in Baramulla, Kupwara & Bandipore districts please go out & vote. Your vote is an opportunity to choose a representative who will espouse our causes & fight our fights in the Lok Sabha for the next 5 years so choose wisely. #VoteHal #halhihalhai,” Omar tweeted.
In another tweet, Omar wrote; “To all my @JKNC_ colleagues & workers in Jammu, Rajouri & Poonch districts please vote & use your vote to send a message against communalism, against fear & against the broken promises of the last 5 years. Vote for Raman Bhalla & send him to the Lok Sabha to fight for J&K.
“To my young colleagues in the @JKYNC_ lead by @salmansagar_ & @ajazjan please encourage the youth to come out in large numbers to cast their votes for peace, progress, communal harmony and against the BJP & its proxy parties,” Omar tweeted.
