Centre should listen to the voice of people of J&K: Omar after DDC polls
National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah urged the Centre to listen to the voices of the people of Jammu and Kashmir against the abrogation of Article 370 since it has itself termed DDC polls as a victory of democracy. "We have been saying this from day one that we'll fight for our rights but not unlawfully or unconstitutionally," Omar said.
