NATIONAL Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Thursday suggested Congress to take a ‘long and hard’ look at its failure in Maharashtra civic body polls, saying he will “truly despair” about 2019 Lok Sabha elections if the results of Assembly polls in five states on March 11 go the same way.

“If 11/03/2017 goes this way, I will truly despair for what it will mean for the battle of 2019 which is the one that really matters,” Omar wrote on Twitter following BJP’s good showing in the civic body polls in Maharashtra.
The former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister said the results of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) were more of a setback to Shiv Sena than Congress.
