Baramulla, May 19 (PTI) A day before Baramulla goes to the polls, National Conference candidate Omar Abdullah on Sunday sought a chance to represent the electorate in Parliament and seek answers for the “injustices” committed against Jammu and Kashmir, particularly after the abrogation of Article 370.

In a video message posted on ‘X’, he urged people to elect an MP of their choice and not that of “Delhi and the agencies”. Abdullah asserted that given a chance, he would speak in Parliament about the feelings of the people of the Union Territory and fight for their rights.

In the brief message, Abdullah said that he was not speaking as a mere politician but as a brother, son, and companion to the people. He urged the electorate to choose their representative from Baramulla wisely on May 20.

He emphasised his commitment to “fighting for their rights and seeking accountability from the Union government” as he made references to August 5, 2019, the day when the special status of the state was withdrawn and it was bifurcated into two Union territories — Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

Stressing the importance of having a local representative “who truly cares for the people”, Abdullah appealed for support for the National Conference, envisioning a better future for the region and generations to come.
