Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday hit back at BJPs prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi,saying he was either ill-informed or lying.
Modi,in his speech at a rally in Jammu on Sunday had cited the example of Omars sister Sara saying women in Jammu and Kashmir did not enjoy the same rights as men under certain laws that granted special status under Article 370.
Modi had made a comparison between Omar and his sister in an apparent bid to suggest women of Jammu and Kashmir who marry outside the state lose their domicile rights particularly over property inheritance.
Modi said,If Omar (Abdullah) married outside Kashmir,his rights of being a citizen remain whereas his sister Sara loses the right for the same because she has married outside Kashmir. Is this not discrimination against women?
Omar hit back with a volley of tweets. He (Modi) very conveniently used me and my sister as examples to illustrate a point that has no bearing on truth. Either he lies or is ill informed, Omar tweeted.
