NC, Farooq Abdullah were once BJP’s allies, Sharad Pawar reminds PM Modi
After Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked him on Tuesday for joining forces with the National Conference (NC), NCP chief Sharad Pawar reminded him that the Farooq Abdullah-led party was an ally of the BJP in the past.
He also said that Modi labelled everyone who goes against him as “terrorist”. Earlier in the day, at a rally at Ausa in Maharashtra, Modi asked if it behoved Pawar to side with the NC which has sought a separate prime minister for Jammu and Kashmir.
“The prime minister targets me whenever he comes to Maharashtra. Today also he raised question as to why Sharad Pawar was with former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister @OmarAbdullah who is like a terrorist,” Pawar tweeted after addressing a campaign meeting for Mumbai Congress chief Milind Deora, who is in fray from the Mumbai South Lok Sabha seat.
Pawar recalled that the BJP had been a partner of the National Conference in the past in Jammu and Kashmir and also in the Central government. “Whenever any force (‘shakti’) goes against Modi, it is dubbed terrorist. This is Modi’s policy,” Pawar tweeted in Hindi.
