Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday congratulated AAP for its performance in Delhi assembly polls, saying there was a lesson for Congress and BJP that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not unbeatable.

"Wow, well done #Delhi & well done @AamAadmiParty. Good luck to @ArvindKejriwal for the next 5 years," the National Conference Working president tweeted.

"If there is lesson for the #Congress in this it is that Modi & BJP aren't unbeatable if you take the fight to them, don't wait for mistakes," he added.

On the political deadlock in Jammu and Kashmir, the former CM said the BJP and the PDP should now form the government in the state.

"Finally dear @BJP4India & @jkpdp can we PLEASE get a Govt in J&K now? You said wait for Delhi & we waited. Now we don't want to wait longer," he tweeted.

Amarinder greets Kejriwal on his 'outstanding success'

Chandigarh: Congress Deputy Leader in the Lok Sabha Amarinder Singh on Tuesday greeted Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its leader Arvind Kejriwal for the "outstanding success" in the Delhi elections and hoped that he would be able to fulfil all the promises he made to the people.

The former Punjab chief minister also suggested the Congress rank and file that although the results were quite disappointing, there was nothing to feel demoralised about.

"Performance in one or two elections does not decide the fate of a great party like Congress that is spread across the nook and corner of the country," he said, adding the recent electoral results notwithstanding, Congress still remains a pan-India party representing all regions and all sections of the society.
