After watching the early trends from different parts of the country, Omar Abdullah said on his twitter site: "I imagined a worst case scenario but early trends are worse than that. Let's hope this trend reverses as the count progresses."
He has been one of the most vocal UPA allies who has criticised BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi during his election campaign.
Speaking to NDTV, Omar said, "I will consider whether I should continue as CM or not. But this is not the end of the game".
On his Twitter account, Omar wrote, "Victory & defeat are part of any contest but if lessons aren't learnt from defeat victory becomes an impossible ask. I will learn from this."<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>Victory & defeat are part of any contest but if lessons aren't learnt from defeat victory becomes an impossible ask.
