Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah  blamed Narendra Modi for inciting violence in Assam that left 32 Muslims dead.

“In Assam, 30 Muslims were murdered. Why? Because BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi made a speech there and tried to incite people against Muslims. This is a fact. This truth cannot be denied,” Omar told an election rally at Tangmarg in Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency.

Omar said that Modi, in his election rally in Assam three days earlier, had branded all Muslims living in that state as “Bangladeshis”, which resulted in the attacks on them.

“Three days earlier, he (Modi) went there and branded all Muslims as Bangladeshis and today 30 Muslims have been put to sleep in the grave,” he added.

Referring to Modi’s statement holding National Conference leaders responsible for exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, Omar said the BJP leader had set out to insult all Kashmiris in the country.

Omar also accused the BJP of wanting to divide Jammu and Kashmir into three parts. Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency along with Ladakh Lok Sabha seat in Jammu and Kashmir will go to polls on May 7.

            Omar Abdullah has no business to attack Modi for the speech given in am leading to death of Muslims.am has a Govt headed by Cong CM.OA is also supporting Cong which is pseudo secular and opportunist..NC in J&K is playing havoc with the lives of local people as every second day there is bom blast and kidnapping of people.If the CM Omar has the courage to give good governance in J&K,then he should ensure peace in the valley and provide jobs to thousands of educated youth in the state.To blame Modi is easy.What FA&OA father and son done for Kashmiris in the last one decade?Omar is a good orator and sugar coated person with no action on ground realities.CM of J&K should quit politics as he has no mission to govern.

                          Abdullah's are another corrupt dynasty like the hi. With so many hard working Kashmiris how come only Abdulah get to rule the state for last 60 years?? Just because they are cunning like a fox and change tones to fool people and get voted back to power..
