In the race up to the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections, the NC chief Farooq Abdullah is whisking yet another conspiracy by making serious allegations on the government over Pulwama terror attack.
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir has alleged that Pulwama attack was an inside job, and that the CRPF Jawans were martyred so that PM Modi could retain his chair.
He said, "CRPF jawans were martyred by him (PM Modi) just for his chair."
This is not the first time that Abdullah went on an abusive tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi but back in March while addressing the NC party workers he doubted that 40 CRPF Jawans were martyred.
"Were Indian soldiers not Martyred in Chhattisgarh? Did Modi Ji go there to give them blood? Did he sympathise with their families? Did he say something about soldiers who were martyred here? But those 40 CRPF people who were martyred, Which I doubt. And I am telling you the truth".
Furthermore, he attacked the government over Balakot air-strikes saying that Pakistan's F-16 was shot down because PM Modi wanted to 'show how brave he is'.
"And he made an issue out of it and what did he do? Tried to attack Pakistan. Said we have attacked and killed 300 people there. Some said 500 people, some said 1000. He said that we have also shot down their plane. Only to show how brave he is".
In the election season, for the various controversies that emerged, abuse and name-calling seem to be the hallmark of various political campaigns, however, this time even the BSP leader disgracefully took the boundaries up a notch.
A BSP candidate, Bhagwan Sharma, fielded by BSP supremo Mayawati and her ally SP chief Akhilesh Yadav on the Fatehpur Sikri seat brazenly abused Prime Minister Modi.
"We are coming to your house. He says, my (abuses) is lying around. Listen, (abuses). (Recites Sanskrit Shloka). Oh (abuses). Your government is (abuses). Your Yogi has not done anything. Your Modi did not do anything. And listen the ones who went away (unclear)."
