Srinagar, May 2 : Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said BJP gets a shot in the arm at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking re-election after UNSC listed Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar global terrorist. Mr Abdullah, vice-president of the National Conference (NC), said it was a symbolic win since there was no mention of terror in Kashmir and fidayeen attack by JeM in which 44 CRPF personnel were martyred on February 14 this year at Awantipora in Pulwama.
Reacting to listing of Masood Azhar as global terrorist, Mr Abdullah, taking to micro-blogging site twitter, said, 'The rest of the opposition must be wondering if it will ever catch a break. Every time the BJP campaign seems to be flagging it gets a shot in the arm. The #MasoodAzhar development in the UN today couldn’t have come at a better time for the Modi ji’s re-election campaign”.
He said, 'No mention of terror in Kashmir & no mention of Pulwama. It's amazing how quickly the sacrifices of the CRPF men were sold down the river to get a symbolic win”.
He further tweeted 'The Chinese diplomats must be a happy bunch today. Their wordplay has allowed both India & Pakistan to claim a diplomatic victory. That’s no small achievement”. (UNI)
