State Times News JAMMU: National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah on Monday called Minister of State Dr Jitendra Singh a “Pakistani” after the latter said that it was the tendency of Kashmiri politicians to speak in the language of Pakistan when they are out of power. Dr Jitendra Singh had said, “I have said this many times before also that since decades, it has been the tendency of Kashmir-based politicians that they call Kashmir an integral part of India when in power and raise questions on the identity of Kashmir and begin seeing positives in Pakistan and their government when out of power.” “This is not restricted to only one party, the PDP. National Conference has shown the same character. When Farooq Abdullah was the CM, he used to complain to the Centre that why are the terror camps in PoK not bombed? We all know what he is saying now when he is not in power,” Singh had added.
An angry Farooq Abdullah responded to the minister’s remarks by saying that it was not him but people like Dr Jitendra who were “Pakistani”. “Aise Log Hain Pakistani, Ye Jitendra Singh Jaise, Farooq Abdullah Nahi Hai. Such people have come to power by lying,” he said. “Tell me when did I say ‘we are not Indians’?”, He asked.
