J&K CM officially favoured students booked under sedition charges: Isn't it violation of election code of conduct?
With the announcement of Lok Sabha Elections on 5th March 2014 by the Election Commission, the Model Election Code of Conduct has come into force in whole of India, including Jammu and Kashmir.

Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir, Omar Abdullah, appears to have deliberately violated the Model Election Code of Conduct by his statements given on 6th March 2014, in favor of 66 Kashmiri students who were charged and booked by the U.P. Government on sedition charges for their anti-national act of raising slogans of 'Pakistan Zindabad.'

Terrorist Hafiz Saeed was very happy with the shameful anti-national act of these students of an University in Meerut, UP and supported their- "Pakistan Zindabad" slogan. Support of Hafiz Saeed is understandable as he is a known terrorist and our so called "secular" politicians have miserably failed to take any action against him. Such persons have forfeited their right to be alive long time ago, but are alive due to the dirty politics played by our so called "secular" forces in the society and politics.

But Omar Abdullah, who unfortunately, is a duly elected J&K CM, came out openly on March 6, 2014 itself and requested UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to reverse the decision of his Government and not to book the 66 anti-national students for sedition charges. 

As the news reports are coming, these students have not been arrested and have been allowed to escape to a safer zone. This is nothing but dirty politics, clearly in violation of the Model Election Code of Conduct.

The problem is that all so called "secular" politicians are playing this dirty politics to secure their vote banks and minority community seems very happy with this politics of appeasement. The credentials of Samajwadi Party led UP Government, are already doubtful.

However, Omar Abdullah probably thinks, that Model Election Code of Conduct is not applicable to him and he advocated shamelessly in favor of these anti-national students and gone a step further in requesting the UP's CM.

Now the big question is whether this shameful statement of Omar Abdullah, is not a clear violation of Model Election Code of Conduct, where, he is clearly trying to influence the voters of his constituency, a head of the Lok Sabha Elections? 

If this is true, then the next big question is whether Election Commission will take any "strict" enough action against Omar Abdullah so that no other politician can play with the security, pride and integrity of the country for his petty political gains?
