Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Monday targeted the opposition and hinted at the BJP returning to power in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Abdullah took to twitter and said, “The myth of opposition unity has been systematically shown for what it is- a chimera. It’s each 1 (one) for themselves in 2019 & 5 (five) more years 2 (to) BJP.”

The National Conference working president reacted to the Gujarat Rajya sabha elections and said that he hope the party can take a note to what the senior Congress leader said. “I hope there are people in the Grand Old Party who sit up & take note of what Jairam is saying. Dismissing his views will be shortsighted,” he tweeted.

Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh  on Monday in an exclusive interview to PTI said that “I would say that the Congress is facing an existential crisis. It is not an electoral crisis. The party really is in deep crisis. We have to understand we are up against Mr Modi, Mr Shah. And they think differently, they act differently, and if we are not flexible in our approach, we will become irrelevant, frankly. “

            No one actually knew much about Modi during 2014 elections. His Jumlas gave him a great success. As of today the people of India have tested his capacity and realized that it is only hawabaazi. Still there are a lot of bhakts who need to be convinced about the true intentions of BJP which are highly personal in nature instead of for the country. I had voted for BJP and felt very proud in 2014 because the party I chose won with a huge majority. I am still a BJP bhakt but my stand today is that if one more scam or corruption comes up from among the BJP "leaders" .......BJP is going to loose 1 vote during 2019 elections and that vote is going to be mine.

              Can you list the scams and prove your allegations? If you know all the facts why are you barking on this forum? Why are you not taking Modi to the court? Faltu bakwas kar raha hai
