Assembly polls are still far away in J&K but the state Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has already set himself the target of winning the crucial 2014 polls.
On Monday when he was posed some straight questions by media persons after the traditional guard of honour on the occasion of reopening of darbar move offices here in the city of temples Omar said we will (the alliance partners) fight the elections to win it.
Omar was asked to comment whether he is hopeful of forming the next govt in the state and he shot back saying no one fights an election to lose it.
He said a lot depends on the judgement of the voters in the state and how they structure the new assembly but trust me all of us sitting on this side are not going to lose it.We are definitely going in to win the polls.
He said there is a very thin line which separates hopeful and arrogance. He said we should not take voters in the state for granted.
He said we are going to put our best foot forward. We will fight the positive elections both during the Lok Sabha and Assembly polls in the state and beyond that we trust the wisdom of the voters, he said.
Omar also dropped clear hints that the Assembly polls would be held separately in the state. Thanking the people of Jammu for welcoming the darbar move employees Omar said this is for the last time in this govt we are here, next time when darbar move offices would be opened here the state must be preparing to go in to the polls to elect the new govt in office.
