SRINAGAR: National Conference Vice-President and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah, said on Monday that the BJP’s developmental slogan in Jammu and Kashmir was a bundle of lies, accusing the party of betraying people in the name of providing employment and holding assembly elections in the region.
Abdullah, while speaking to reporters in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, stated that the BJP has consistently betrayed the people, making false promises about elections, unemployment reduction, development, improved electricity, and other minor issues.
“Except for lies, they have not delivered anything to the people. The condition of electricity was not as dire as it is today, despite their claims of spending crores of funds. Why don’t they allocate more funds to provide electricity to the people of J&K? In our times, the situation was better than it is today,” Omar said.
Responding to the Amshipora Shopian encounter, in which the army suspended punishment to the involved army officer, former CM Omar Abdullah appealed to the central government to refrain from exploiting the people of J&K. “With this verdict, the central government gave a sense to the people of J&K that their blood is cheap,” he said.
