opposition PDP. The governor has accepted Omar’s resignation. ( Watch )
During the J&K assembly session today, PDP leader and former deputy chief minister Muzaffar Beig linked the J&K chief minister to the infamous sex scandal that had rocked Srinagar in 2006.
He was accompanied to the governor’s residence by his father Farooq Abdullah.
In an emotional outburst in the assembly, Omar Abdullah said," I can't bear this kind of humiliation. I am innocent until proven guilty."
Omar's name figures at 102 on the list of offenders involved in the sex scandal, the opposition alleged. His name is being probed by the CBI, it claimed. "I have to say with regret, there is the name of Omar Abdullah, son of Farooq Abdullah, in the list. He has lost the moral authority to rule the state. He must resign," Muzaffar Beig said, PTI reported.
To which the J&K CM said, "I am going to submit by resignation to Governor N N Vohra. I know it is a false allegation. But I want to resign till I am cleared of this false allegation. I cannot work till I am proved innocent. It is a blot on my character.
There was huge uproar in the assembly during Omar's statement. The MLAs and ministers physically restrained him from going out telling him not to resign and that the party would not accept it. He was virtually forced to take his seat by the ruffled members but he got up to shout at them saying "allow me to take this first step."
Abdullah, who came to power in January this year at the head of a National Conference-Congress coalition, was virtually forced to take his seat by the ruffled members but he got up to shout at them saying "allow me to take this first step"".
A huge sex scandal hit the Valley in 2006. According to reports, girls, including minors, were coerced into prostitution, blackmailed and supplied to top police officials, bureaucrats, politicians, ministers and surrendered militants. The state had witnessed angry protests over the issue.

New Delhi (PTI): In a word of advice to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, state Congress chief Saifuddin Soz on Tuesday said the National Conference leader should "not get emotional" over the allegation against him.
"Mr Abdullah should not get emotional and press forhis resignation. It is an accusation made by the PDP. He (Abdullah) has not been found guilty by a judge," Mr Soz told reporters outside Parliament house.
Mr Soz was reacting to accusations by PDP that the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister was involved in the infamous 'Srinagar sex scandal'.
I have to say, I am glad to hear about politics from kashmir rather militants killing people.
Way to go.... Good for Kashmiri people. The more people get involved, the better.
I see the chaos as a positive sign.
yes but that lady Mehaboooooba mufti should be taught some freeking manners
you are right and Omar Abdullah shouldn't always react emotionally to all the accusations made by opposition. Tomorrow, they will accuse him of something else.
It will be difficult for people like him to do any good work then.
He better buckle up.
Oh, don't think he is an emotional person. He has scored good brownie points here. Mehbooba will be on the back foot.
for some odd reson i sooooooooooooo hate mehaboba
Yes, you are right . He has scored brownie points. Any info on when the CBI results will come out or court rulings will come out ?
CBI has given a clean chit it seems
High drama in J-K: CM's resignation rejected
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday resigned from the post after a senior Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader alleged that he was involved in the Srinagar sex scandal.
However, Governor NN Vohra refused to accept the resignation and asked Omar to stay on till the probe on the matter is over.
In his resignation letter, Omar had asked Vohra to initiate an enquiry into the allegations levelled against him within a specified time frame.
"I would be grateful if in a time bound manner you can enquire into the allegations levelled against me at the the earliest," Omar's political advisor Davender Rana quoted the Chief Minister as saying.
Omar had submitted a conditional resignation letter to the Governor and CNN-IBN has exclusive details of the letter that the J-K Chief Minister had sent to Governor Vohra.
It was expected that the governor would reject the resignation. All political drama. Omar gets sympathy and political points. PDP goes further down.
