Srinagar: Calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘Firavoon’, National Conference (NC) patron and party candidate from Srinagar Lok Sabha polls, Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Monday challenged Modi to organize a rally in Kashmir.
Abdullah while addressing a rally here at Sher-e-Kashmir Park, said that PM Modi is dividing the country, saying he will meet the fate of ‘Pharaoh’.
Abdullah added that his policies towards Kashmir have always remained against the people of Valley. “I challenge him to organize a rally in Kashmir like he is rallying in other parts of the country,” he said.
Dr. Farooq was accompanied by NC Vice president and former minister Omar Abdullah, Ali Muhammad Sagar, Nasir Aslam Wani, Aga Ruhullah, Shameema Firdous, Mubarak Gul, Dr. Mustafa Kamal and others.
He said that India would not have been in existence in case NC had conspired to destruct the country.
Meanwhile, Omar Abdullah also addressed the gathering who stressed on safeguarding the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
“The special status to Jammu and Kashmir has been given to the people inheritance and people have to answer those who are trying to attack it from past several years,” he added.
He said that people must cast their ballots with proper analysis so that the forces who are attacking the JK will not come into the power again. “It is the people who will come up with the results about the stronghold of any party on May 29,” he added.
Earlier, the gathering was started with the State’s anthem during which the NC leadership as well as the crowd there were seen waiving the NC flag.
