Can't see how Rafale remains election issue after SC-verdict: Omar
National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said he did not see the Rafale deal remaining an election issue, in view of the verdict given by the Supreme court. "Can't see how #RafaleDeal remains an election issue after this," Omar tweeted after SC verdict. The apex court said there's no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the multi-billion dollar Rafale fighter jet deal with France.

Was it right to take Rafale-issue to SC, Omar questions
A bench, headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, said there has been a necessity of fighter aircraft and the country cannot remain without fighter jets. Omar questioned whether it was right to take the Rafale issue to SC. "Have to ask whether the SC was the right place to fight this battle? Some fights are best fought in the political arena," he added.
