Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir BJP leader Ishfaq-ur-Rehman Poswal today attacked Omar Abdullah for criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “not addressing” political issues during his visit to Srinagar, saying as a chief minister the NC leader did nothing to address the issue.
“We criticise former chief minister Omar Abdullah for his remark that people of Kashmir were desperate to hear an announcement about peace process and Kashmir resolution from Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his maiden rally in Srinagar recently,” the BJP leader and national executive member ST Morcha said.
Poswal said had Omar or his party been serious in restoring peace and resolving the Kashmir issue, then he should have made such efforts during his tenure as chief minister of state.
“Omar miserably failed to achieve development in Jammu and Kashmir during his tenure as chief minister. Shamefully Omar talks of development and Kashmir resolution,” he said.
Poswal said that Omar-led government utterly failed to provide any relief to people or bring development to the state and is now raising fingers on developmental plans of union government headed by dynamic leader Narendra Modi.
The BJP leader also took a dig at the former chief minister for criticising BJP for losing Bihar elections. “NC lost badly in assembly elections last year and instead of making a self-introspection Omar is passing remarks about BJP’s performance in Bihar,” said Poswal.
