National Conference vice president and former J&K CM, Omar Abdullah claimed that bureaucrats, who supported early J&K assembly elections, were being "browbeaten and threatened" using performance appraisals against them on Monday.
Abdullah has always been quite outspoken and critical against the Election Commission's decision to not hold assembly elections in the state simultaneously with the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Abdullah took to Twitter to express his dismay in a series of tweets:

-One day we will talk about the cabal of officers in J&K who for their own selfish reasons have taken it upon themselves to scuttle democracy in the state.

-Some have no stakes in the state and some are looking at Post-retirement postings in cushy appointments. Whatever their reasons they have chosen to put their personal interests ahead of the greater good.

-"I'm shocked to hear how officers who have supported early assembly elections are being browbeaten & threatened using their performance appraisals against them to get them to toe the line

-No honest officer should fear these threats. We must put the greater good ahead of our personal preferences & benefits. Those people making the threats will not remain in the state for very long.
