Working president of the National Conference (NC) and chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said the under-current in favour of the NC and enthusiasm of its workers to register remarkable victory in 2014 assembly elections had frustrated its opponents to such an extent that they were making all bogus propaganda and stooping too low to criticise the NC and its leadership.
Omar lashed out at the Congress for misleading people against the NC and unleashing false propaganda against it.
Omar was addressing election rallies at remote areas of Lohai, Nathi, Duggani in Bani assembly constituency and at Bishnah assembly constituency organised in favour of NC candidates Malik Ghulam Haider and Kamal Arora.
He said when the NC was campaigning in favour of the Congress candidates in the Parliament elections Ghulam Nabi Azad was full of praises and admiration for the NC and its leadership. "It is astonishing that Azad is now not only criticising the NC but also making Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah and Farooq Abdullah subject matter of election campaign when both are not around," he added.
The CM said this behaviour of the Congress and its leadership exposes the frustration of the party it was engulfed in.
"People of the state will teach them a lesson and give fitting response by wholeheartedly voting in favour of the NC," he claimed.
The chief minister also criticised the BJP for deceiving people and asking them to vote to Narendra Modi. He said Narendra Modi was the Prime Minister of India and not fighting election in Jammu and Kashmir, as such asking people to vote to Modi was nothing but to off target them.
He appealed to the people to come out in large numbers and vote in favour of the NC candidates.
Omar also referred to the canards circulated by the Congress against the NC for not implementing Union Food Security Act in the state and termed it a false propaganda aimed at fooling the people.
