Modi not exonerated in Gujarat riots: Omar Abdullah

RAJOURI: 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 while as Narendra Modi and his party, BJP, has the agenda of dividing the society on various counts to grab the power,” Omar said while addressing a rally in Rajouri, according to a NC statement.
Referring to Modi’s denial to wear a cap presented to him by Muslims, Omar said “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 said.
Omar 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 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 aims to benefit its mentor, BJP.”
The Chief Minister said that people have experienced the “miss-governance and nepotism let loose by PDP during its three years tenure in power in the state.”
“Befooling people on various issues is handiwork of PDP and BJP,” Omar said, adding “The conduct of these parties in the Assembly and outside has amply exposed their duality and deceptive politics aimed at grabbing power.”
