The Northlines - - FRONT PAGE - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT

BJP Fri­day hit back at Na­tional Con­fer­ence Pres­i­dent Dr Fa­rooq Ab­dul­lah over the al­le­ga­tions of "com­mu­nal di­vide" say­ing that the tirade of Ab­dul­lah and three time for­mer Jammu and Kash­mir Chief Min­is­ter was driven by his "frus­tra­tion and des­per­a­tion."

"His tirade against BJP is driven by the fact that Modi gov­ern­ment has ig­nored the Ab­dul­lahs to such an ex­tent that they are en­gulfed with frus­tra­tion and des­per­a­tion," said the BJP state spokesper­son Brig Anil Gupta said in a state­ment.

He claimed that Ab­dul­lah was is­su­ing "ir­ra­tional and il­log­i­cal" state­ments be­cause Kash­miri youth ab­horred his party. Re­act­ing to Ab­dul­lah's charge that the BJP mas­tered com­mu­nal di­vide within In­dia, Gupta said: "If pro­tect­ing the in­ter­ests of the ma­jor­ity is ' di­vi­sive' ac­cord­ing to Fa­rooq then what would he term the NC- Congress vote bank pol­i­tics which is based on play­ing with the sen­ti­ments of Hin­dus against Mus­lims and the sen­ti­ments of Mus­lims against Hin­dus?"

He al­leged that the NC has mas­tered the art of play­ing Mus­lim card in Mus­lim area of the State and Hindu card in Hindu ar­eas to mis­lead the vot­ers with­out any re­gard for peo­ple and the na­tion.

Hit­ting back at Ab­dul­lah for terming BJP lead­ers as "Dakku Num­ber 1", Brig Gupta said he was one of the main ac­cused in Jammu & Kash­mir Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion scam where crores have been robbed. "The de­mand for re­veal­ing the source of huge wealth amassed by him and his son is also grow­ing louder and the Ab­dul­lah's need to dis­close from where these have been robbed? The peo­ple are in­tel­li­gent enough to know as to who is "Daaku Num­ber 1?" he said.( CNS)
