The ruling National Conference leadership Tuesday had to face the anger of the workers as many of them demanded Omar Abdullah be replaced by his father Dr Farooq Abdullah for the coming assembly elections.

Omar was appointed working president in 2012 by his father Dr Farooq Abdullah.

NC had convened a party meeting at its head office and a number of party workers had reached Nawa-e-Subh. Eyewitnesses told Kashmir Life that all the workers were not allowed to enter the premises and only office bearers at the district, Tehsil and Block level were allowed to sit in the meeting.

As the meeting was going on the angry workers raised pro-Farooq sloganeering which resulted in the chaos.

“Majority of us are now convinced that if Dr Abdullah takes reins of the party something can be done to save the party,” said a worker adding “Farooq himself must establish contacts with the grassroots workers which is beyond the capacity of the present working president and Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah.”

One angry worker of the party said “Omar Abdullah wants to know the cause of debacle from people on emails while the grassroots workers of the party are denied a say in the party”.

After facing the rout in the recently concluded parliamentary elections in the state, ruling National Conference has kick started the process of analysing the reasons for its failure.

The party had called a meeting at its head office to discuss the reasons behind the recent defeat at the hands of PDP in the valley.

Sources revealed that the top brass of the party has called the meeting to ‘introspect’ the working and chalk out the future strategy in aftermath of the election results which have dismayed the cadre across valley.
