State Times News JAMMU: It seems the new found ‘bonhomie’ between the National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti has evaporated in thin air even before the start of Lok Sabha election campaign. On Tuesday, after chairing the meeting of PDP leaders here, PDP Chief Mehbooba Mufti made a brief statement in front of selected media persons, saying National Conference is treating the state of Jammu and Kashmir as its own ‘Jagir’. Cornering National Conference, Mehbooba Mufti said, “When Mufti Mohammed Sayeed was in the Congress, National Conference leaders used to describe Congressmen as ‘Gandi Nali Ke Keede (worms in the gutter).’ They even labelled Congress party as ‘agents of New Delhi’.
She claimed when PDP was formed, National Conference again targeted them and now when former IAS officer Shah Faesal has floated his own political, Omar Abdullah is thinking that they are trying to encroach upon their political space and snatching their ‘jagir’.
Mehbooba said, “We are all living in a democratic country. In this country everyone has equal right to launch a political outfit and work for the welfare of the masses”.
