Srinagar: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday said he will not stop opposing BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate in spite of party’s leader from Bihar Giriraj Singh asking Narendra Modi’s opponents to go to Pakistan.
“Today we are getting threat after threat. Thanks to Allah, we have Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service. So, I would not need to go to Delhi or Amritsar to cross Wagah border (into Pakistan).
“I will get a (bus) ticket from here to Muzaffarabad and cross into Pakistan because I will not stop opposing Modi,” Omar told an election rally in Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency.
The rally was also addressed by Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Pradesh Congress Committee president Saif-ud-Din Soz.
Azad said Modi should not be the Prime Minister of the country as he carried the stigma of 2002 communal riots in Gujarat.
“He (Modi) is the only leader who has been a Chief Minister for 12 years but has been refused entry into the United States. We may think that the US is a Muslim friendly country — not that big friend of Muslims,” Azad said adding “should we allow such a person to become Prime Minister of India”.
