The unexpected event took place on Twitter. NC leader, Omar Abdullah re-tweeted Mehbooba Mufit's tweets and said that he had never thought he would re-tweet her comments.

"And I never thought I'd be retweeting anything you said while agreeing with you. Politics truly is a strange world. Good luck for the battle ahead. Once again the wisdom of the people will prevail," Omar wrote on Twitter. Omar in fact retweeted Mehbooba four times in just 15 minutes.

"In my twenty six year old career as a politician, I thought I had seen it all! But like they say never say never! Nevertheless, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to @OmarAbdullah and @Ambikasoni4 ji for helping us achieve the seemingly impossible," Mufti tweeted.

"Oddly enough our pleas fell on deaf ears. But who would have thought that the very idea of a grand coalition would give such jitters".

"In today's age of technology, it is very strange that the fax machine at HE Governor's residence didn't receive our fax but swiftly issued one regarding the assembly dissolution," she also said.
