Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said on Monday that he would “prefer to go to Pakistan” than stop criticising the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

Addressing an election rally in Anantnag district, he said, “I will prefer to go to Pakistan than stop criticising Modi… Thanks to the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus, I won’t have to go to New Delhi. I can board the bus from here only.”

He was reacting to Bihar BJP leader Giriraj Singh’s statement that there is “no place” for those who “want to stop” Modi and “their place will be in Pakistan”.

Union minister Farooq Abdullah said the BJP wants to create “a new Pakistan”. Speaking to the media in Chadoora, he said, “This is the mindset of the BJP… It is this mindset that created Pakistan. Now they want to create a new Pakistan”.

Farooq said, “The statement that all Modi opponents are Pakistan supporters reflects the poison and venom that dictates the policies of BJP and Modi… I think this is dirty thinking and you should oppose it as much as you can. If they (BJP) continue with this mindset, it will be difficult for them to save India”.

                  Omar should first try living in stan for six months to see if it suits him. Otherwise just stay put where you are.
