Sitting in London, Omar teases prime minister Modi
New Delhi: Having made to bite dust at the hustings, outgoing Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah is now out to settle scores with his political opponents by creating confusion, ostensibly to somehow scuttle the process of government formation in the state.
Playing his cards deftly, to start with Omar Abdullah initially sent feelers to the BJP and at the same time publicly announced unconditional support to the PDP to form the government. In this move of NC working chief, the Congress too jumped in and started its own political game by repeating what Omar had been indulging in.
All this was being done in a way to tease prime minister Narendra Modi and for that Omar took to his twitter handle sitting in his cosy London home.
Omar has been teasing Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Twitter, for his party’s attempt to woo PDP and his own party — National Conference — for government formation in the valley.
He has been doing all this in his bid to remind the BJP of its promises made to the people of the valley where it had vowed to end dynasty politics by defeating both PDP and NC in the state.
Omar retweeted a tweet posted by BJP candidate Nazir Masoodi where the latter had posted a BJP billboard promising to “end the dynasty rule of two families” in the state.
He tweeted that even after five days since the election results came out, only rumours are in store for the valley.
It may be recalled that during the election campaign in both J&K and Jharkhand, Narendra Modi had targeted the dynasty politics of NC’s Farooq and Omar Abdullah, PDP’s Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Mehbooba Mufti in Jammu & Kashmir, and JMM’s Shibu and Hemant Soren in Jharkhand.
