“Why is BJP forcing this uncertainty on the state? Mehbooba, understandably, needs time to grieve but these guys?,” Omar’s tweet said.

He was reacting to the statement of BJP’s J&K head, Sat Sharma. “We have decided that we will discuss this in four days,” Sat Sharma of the BJP had said on Mehbooba Mufti’s swearing in as J&K CM.
