Making comparison between Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi, Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah, who is also Working President of National Conference, Tuesday said that while Rahul Gandhi represents the aspirations of modern India and is sincere in his efforts to ensure inclusive and holistic development of all sections of the society equitably, Narendra Modi is beholder of a known ideology and has not been exonerated by the people of the Country of the charges of communal riots in Gujarat in which large number of people were killed.
“Rahul Gandhi is the pulse of young India and takes along with him people of all the age groups in his mission to lead India towards a modern, prosperous and scientific era and Narendra Modi and his party BJP has the agenda of dividing the society on various counts to grab the power”, he added and said that PDP is partner to this tactics of BJP in Jammu and Kashmir.
Omar Abdullah referred to the denial of Narinder Modi for cladding a cap presented to him by Muslims and said that this has completely exposed Modi’s attitude and his particular thinking. “How can a person possessing this type of ideology lead a Nation which is abode of multi-religions, languages, cultures and ethnic groups”, Omar Abdullah questioned.
Addressing public gatherings at Darhal, Budhal and Kotranka in Rajouri District of Jammu Division organized in support of the joint candidates of NC-Congress alliance, Omar Abdullah said that stepping in the Parliament election by PDP despite knowing its imminent defeat is just to divide votes particularly in Poonch-Rajouri Districts to benefit BJP and Narinder Mondi.
Omar Abdullah said that normally there are three types of candidates in election fray.
“First type of candidates are those who contest just for name sake, second type contest only to put hurdle in the smooth sailing of winning candidates and the third are sure shots to win the elections”, he said adding that PDP represents the second type of contestants who only want to divide the voters in the name of region and religion and benefit its mentor (BJP).
The Chief Minister said that people have experienced the miss-governance, nepotism let loose by PDP during its three years tenure in power in the State. He said befooling people on various issues is handiwork of PDP and BJP. He said the conduct of these parties in the Assembly and outside has amply exposed their duality and deceptive politics aimed at grabbing power.
Omar Abdullah said that PDP knows that it will not win the election. He said in order to divide the society it has fielded an inhabitant of Rajouri- Poonch belt purposely in the Parliamentary election to supplement and help BJP. However, the NC Working President said that people are wiser enough to read between the lines and foil the attempts of divisive forces voting in large number for NC-Congress candidates representing communal amity, brotherhood and equitable development of all sections of the society.
Omar Abdullah cautioned the people against the elements who want to divide the society for political gains and said that voting NC-Congress candidates is to supplement the young, dynamic and sincere leader Rahul Gandhi.
