SRINAGAR, Apr 15: National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today asked as to why BJP did not raise any qualms when the National Conference government in the state during Dr Farooq Abdullah's tenure passed the autonomy resolution in the legislative assembly here.
Omar was addressing an election rally here.
“Today BJP are outraged at our undertaking for the restoration of state’s status. They are the ones who used to sit with me in the central cabinet when we got the autonomy resolution passed from our assembly with majority. Why did they not raise any qualms then," he said.
The NC leader said that his party did not change its views. "We have been maintaining that it is the restoration of autonomy only that will go a long way in removing the cobwebs of mistrust between New Delhi and the state. Our stance remains the same both inside or outside government,” he said.
In a frontal attack on Modi, he said, “PM Modi is repeating the same promises what he made during his election rallies in Jammu. Then he had said that his mission was to free the state of the two families. What followed is known to all. He joined the hands with one of the political families he had been attacking all along his campaign. He helped two of its family members become chief minister. Now he is singing the same tune of acquitting the state from the two families.”
Flaying Mehbooba Mufti for betraying and berating the mandate of people, Omar said, “Today we see her throwing tantrums over the plight of the people of Kashmir. But people are asking where she was when our kids were attacked upon across the country. People are asking her; what was she doing when Muslims were being lynched across the country? People are asking why she did not leave the chair when the unremitting torments were being unleashed on the people. Had BJP not kicked PDP, they would have been in power until now. She stands no chance; no passing of blame can absolve her of the role she played in bringing BJP to the state," Omar said.
