Former Jammu and Kashmir chief ministers Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti got into a Twitter spat on Thursday after the Mehbooba taking to Twitter to criticise BJP after they announced the candidature of Malegaon blast accused Sadhvi Pragya Thakur Singh from Bhopal.
Soon after the BJP’s announcement Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba took to Twitter and wrote: “Imagine the anger if I’d field a terror accused. Channels would’ve gone berserk by now trending a mehbooba terrorist hashtag! According to these guys terror has no religion when it comes to saffron fanatics but otherwise, all Muslims are terrorists. Guilty until proven innocent.”
Former Chief Minister and NC Vice president Omar Abdullah responded to Mehbooba’s tweet reminded her that these guys were her allies till June 2018.
““These guys” were your allies until they unceremoniously unseated you. “These guys” have been this way before they came to power in 2014 but you only noticed their sins after June 2018. The desire to remain in power blinded you to their crimes until “these guys” forced you to see!” Omar tweeted.
Mehbooba reacted quickly and reminded Omar that his party was the BJP’s first regional ally in the state.
“Someone’s had a belated reaction to my tweet! As their first ally from J&K you’d know their true colours since you served as an MoE under NDA. Oddly enough Ram Vilas Paswan resigned post Gujarat carnage on moral grounds but you chose not to. Consume almonds Omar. Improves memory,” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
However, Omar responded by saying he was happy giving a comparison of his relations with Vajpayee government and Mehbooba’s alliance with Modi.
“When you are done tweeting for your mother you can tell her I’m more than happy to debate my 3 years with Vajpayee Sahib v/s her 4 years with Modi ji but I’d rather do that directly with her & not with her understudy,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
Mehbooba reacted to Omar’s tweet and wrote: “That’s no answer to my questions! Did I hit a raw nerve? Deflecting it with juveline comebacks wont help Omar. If I were you Id pop an antacid for the stomach burn.”
