Srinagar: Responding to rumours about the health of National Conference (NC) president Dr Farooq Abdullah, former chief minister Omar Abdullah said his father was absolutely fine.
The NC vice-president Omar said the stories about Dr Abdullah’s health were unfounded.
Taking to micro blogging site Twitter, Mr Omar said, ‘I don’t know where the rumours about my father having taken ill in Jammu started from but he’s absolutely fine & all the stories are unfounded. Thank you to all of you who called/messaged to ask after him.’
For the past about a week, Dr Farooq and Mr Omar had toured dozens of areas and addressed public and workers meetings in Jammu and Kashmir seeking mandate in the next Assembly elections.
The state is under President’s rule after Governor’s rule ended which was imposed in June last year after BJP pulled out from the coalition government led by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti.
