Working president of the National Conference (NC) and chief minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said the under-current in favour of the NC had frustrated its opponents.
Abdullah lashed out at the Congress for misleading people against the NC and unleashing false propaganda against it.
Abdullah 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.
The CM said when the NC was campaigning in favour of the Congress candidates in the parliamentary elections (Congress leader) Ghulam Nabi Azad was full of praise 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. "Narendra Modi as if he is contesting the elections here. He is the Prime Minister and he is not contesting to become the Chief Minister of the state," Abdullah said.
"Seeking votes in the name of Prime Minister is an act to misguide the people of the state."
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.
Abdullah appealed to the people to come out in large numbers and vote in favour of the NC candidates.
The NC chief 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.
