Srinagar: Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Friday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his silence over attacks on Kashmiris across the country in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, which claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans.
Quoting his slogan “Sab ka saath...”, Abdullah said even as the BJP allies reacted, Modi remains silent on the issue.
“The Akali Dal has spoken, the Shiv Sena surprised us all by publicly rebuking people threatening Kashmiris in Maharashtra, Nitish Kumar ji has opposed talk of revoking Art370. These are all major allies of PM Modi. What has Modi ji said? Nothing! So much for “sub ka saath……” Omar tweeted today.
This comes after two Kashmiri students were attacked by a group of political activists in Maharashtra’s Yavatmal on Wednesday night.
According to reports, the eight accused of the assault were members of the Yuva Sena, the youth wing of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena.
Acting promptly, Shiv Sena later sacked the party men involved in the attack.
