The Chief Minister decided to quit over the opposition PDP's allegations claiming that he was involved in the 2006 Srinagar Sex Scandal.
After he walked out of the assembly announcing that he was going to the Governor to submit his resignation, the CBI revealed that Omar Abdullah was not named in the accused list of the case.
The Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram also told the media that the Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister's name was not in the CBI report on the sex scam.
The Chief Minister on Tuesday, Jul 28 submitted a conditional resignation stating that if he was found guilty then he would quit his post.
National Conference leader, who was met with physical opposition from his party members when he was leaving the house, had said, "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."
