With BJP winning 300+ seats in Uttar Pradesh according to the latest trends, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Friday questioned that “How the hell did almost all the experts/analysts miss this wave in UP?”. He also said that it is a tsunami and not a ripple in a small pond. He further said that there is no leader today with a pan India acceptability who can take on Modi & the BJP in 2019. “At this rate, we might as well forget 2019 and start planning (and) hoping for 2024,” he added.

 

The former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said the opposition needs to shift its strategy “from mere criticism to a positive alternative” and the results in other states give some hope that the BJP is not unbeatable. “Punjab, Goa and Manipur would certainly suggest that the BJP isn’t unbeatable but strategy needs to shift from criticism to positive alternate. “I have said this before and I will say it again the voter needs to be given an alternative agenda that is based on what we will do better,” he said.

 

Abdullah said criticizing the Prime Minister “will only take us so far” and that the voter needs to know there is an option available to them that has a clear positive road map.
