Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah Tuesday said that declaring the candidates for the post of the Prime Minister or Chief Minister should be made mandatory for parties ahead of the elections to allow people have a say in the process.
“I believe declaration of CM/PM candidates before election should be mandatory,” Omar, wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
He wrote, “People should have a say in deciding their CM/PM & not be surprised by party leaderships after the votes are cast.”
Omar also demanded for television debates between the aspirants for the top posts for spelling out their vision.
“I know @jkpdp leaders refused a pre-election debate planned by @sardesairajdeep but I hope @thekiranbedi (and) @ArvindKejriwal agree to at least one,” he said.
