New Delhi: Former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that there is no competition to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headed towards a landslide win in Uttar Pradesh.

An unexpected praise for Modi and a warning signal for fellow opposition leaders came from the scion of the Abdullah family as he took to micro blogging site, Twitter, and candidly expressed his opinions saying that the BJP’s win in Uttar Pradesh could well mean that opposition parties have to forget the next parliamentary elections in 2019 and start preparing for 2024 (the 18th Lok Sabha elections).

In a nutshell there is no leader today with a pan India acceptability who can take on Modi & the BJP in 2019.

At this rate we might as well forget 2019 & start planning/hoping for 2024.
