Former Chief Minister and National Conference working president Omar Abdullah Thursday ridiculed PDP for its promise of change in its elections campaign.
The former chief minister’s comments come after state authorities slapped Public Safety Act (PSA) on Hurriyat senior leader Masarat Alam.
“Masarat Alam detained under PSA & shipped to Jammu; new recruits to be paid stipend for years together & @jkpdp promised voters a change?” he asked.
He pointed out the ‘discrepancies’ between the ruling PDP’s election manifesto, which included releasing political prisoners and the actions taken by the state government headed by the regional party.
“This @jkpdp & @BJP4India Govt after the Modi/Mufti accord is a change alright but a change for the worse, no doubt about it,” he added.
Pertinently, during NC led coalition government led by former CM Omar Abdullah, Masarat was jailed for 54 continuous months post 2010 uprising.
