I’m Nobody To Go Against BJP: Mattu’s Reponses To Question On His Past Stand Against Saffron Party
Srinagar: Junaid Azim Mattu, who left National Conference to contest municipal election and then become Mayor of Srinagar with the support from BJP and its ally People Conference, on Tuesday said that he was nobody to oppose the saffron party.
“I’m nobody to go against BJP. If you have right to ask this question here, those of BJP corporators who have been elected have right to be here. This holier than thou moral narrative has been created. Omar Abdullah (National Conference vice president) remained BJP’s External Affairs Minister (MoS) and Mehoobaji (Mehooba Mufti, President PDP and former Chief Minister) was part of them till yesterday,” Mattu said while responding to a question by a scribe, seeking his comments that while he was opposing BJP till yesterday, he now walks with the saffron party.
“Do ask this question to them (Omar and Mehbooba) first as to what moral narrative they are talking today and then this small man Junaid Mattu will respond,” he added.
