Srinagar, Feb 4: Accusing Narendra Modi government of misusing CBI and other institutions, National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti supported West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is sitting on dharna since last night against CBI raid on Kolkata police chief’s residence.
She alleged that BJP cannot fight her politically and are now using CBI.
The former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who spoke to Mamata to convoy NC’s support, alleged that the use of the CBI as a political tool has crossed all limits by the Modi government. He said a former CM (Modi) having such little regard for India’s federalism is shocking.
Taking to micro blogging site twitter Mr Omar said “ Just spoke to @MamataOfficial didi to convey the support of @JKNC_ as she sits in dharna. The use of the CBI as a political tool has crossed all limits as has the Modi government’s misuse of institutions. A former CM having such little regard for India’s federalism is shocking”.
Another former J&K CM Mehbooba expressing solidarity with Mamata Banerjee alleged that history stands testament to how J&K has faced the wrath of central agencies. She said it is disheartening to see how institutions are being hijacked only to discredit political opponents. It does not bode well for Centre-state relationship, said Mehbooba who headed a coalition government with BJP before stepping down, after the saffron party pulled out it in June last year.
Ms Mehbooba in a tweet said,"in solidarity with @MamataOfficial History stands testament to how JK has faced the wrath of central agencies. Its disheartening to see how institutions are being hijacked only to discredit political opponents . Doesn’t bode well for the Centre-State relationship."(UNI)
