PDP 'sold-out' to BJP: Omar

Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday hit out at PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for being a "sell-out" to BJP.

"Dear Mufti sahib, please don't say you won't 'sell out' because you've already done that by helping BJP in the Legislative Council elections," Omar wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter.

"You (Sayeed) already 'sold out' by demanding Art 370 status quo when you had sold 'Self Rule' to people in J&K, please stop playing the martyr," he wrote in another tweet. 

The National Conference working president also took a dig at the PDP leader for "supporting" BJP in Rajya Sabha polls and Legislative Council elections. PDP and BJP are in talks over government formation in the state ever since the results of the Assembly elections on December 23 threw up a hung Assembly.
