Omar slams Cong for attacking his grandfather

Hitting back at senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said he was shocked to see his late grandfather and his ailing father being “attacked” even when they are not even on the election scene.

“I am surprised to observe that Congress leadership can stoop so low to target late Sheikh Abdullah and Farooq Abdullah when both of these are not anywhere in the election race. The former has left the world for heavenly abode and the later is undergoing treatment outside the country,” he said.

Azad’s CM stint recalled
Addressing election rallies for the final phase of polls in Rajouri area of Jammu region, Omar asked Azad to recollect the “communal hatred and regional frenzy created by him” as chief minister of the state in 2008.

“Azad left the state in a situation of uncertainty and confusion,” he said.
In a scathing attack on Abdullahs, Azad had said on Monday that “three generations of this family have failed to deliver in Jammu and Kashmir.” “Abdullah family has failed to do any good to people despite being in power for decades together,” he said.

Omar also lashed out at the coalition partner’s leadership for accusing his party of not implementing Food Security Act in the state. “Had I implemented this Act in Jammu and Kashmir, I would have deprived 25 lakh people from getting ration,” Omar said, elaborating how the Central Food Act would negatively impact the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
