BJP using Pulwama terror strike to attack opposition parties, alleges Omar

SRINAGAR: National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Sunday said the Bharatiya Janata Party has “politicised” the Pulwama attack and was “using it to attack opposition parties”.

Abdullah’s remarks come after BJP president Amit Shah, at a rally in Assam, said “the sacrifice of CRPF personnel won’t go in vain as it’s not the Congress government which is at the Centre, it is the BJP which is at the Centre”.

“The BJP & their pet channels shouldn’t play victim now when the opposition does its political duty by highlighting the failures of the government. It’s the BJP that has politicised the Pulwama attack & is using it to attack opposition parties. #Shame,” Omar wrote on Twitter. (AGENCIES)
