Omar will be off Kashmir till early new year

Srinagar, Dec 12 (UNI) National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said he was “going off-grid for a few weeks” after two “deeply disappointing” days, both professionally and personally.

Omar’s announcement came in the backdrop of the Supreme Court verdict on Article 370 and Delhi High Court rejecting his appeal seeking divorce from his estranged wife.

The former chief minister posted on X that the last two days have been deeply disappointing both personally and professionally.

“Who was it who said it’s not how hard you can hit, it’s how hard you can get hit & still keep moving forward? The last two days have been deeply disappointing both personally & professionally but I refuse to give up & slink away,” Omar said.

“ It’s that time of the year when I take some time to be with those I care about, to refresh, recharge & come back stronger. I’m going off-grid for a few weeks. Will come back early in the new year fighting fit & ready to face the challenges that 2024 will throw at me, including at least two elections in J&K. The fights & struggles will continue,” he added.

After the SC verdict which put a stamp of approval on the union government’s decision on August 5, 2019 to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution of India that gave the erstwhile J&K state a special status, Omar had said he was disappointed but not disheartened. He vowed to fight for the restoration of the rights of people of J&K.
