The war of words between NC leader Omar Abdullah and Gautam Gambhir continued after the BJP entrant responded to Abdullah's 'stick to the things you know about' statement over the 'separate PM for J&K' controversy.
In a back and forth argument on Twitter, Gambhir attacked the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and drew sharp criticism on his 'governance'
He tweeted: Never mind your lack of cricketing prowess but Kashmiris and our country would have been well served if you knew a thing or two about selfless governance. By the way history is always consistent but perspectives are subjective. Better clean your reading glasses.
This tweet came in response to Omar Abdullah's attack, where he called out the cricketer-turned-politician for displaying 'ignorance' and being unaware of the history of Jammu and Kashmir, furthermore asked him to 'stick to the stuff' he knows, citing IPL.
The episode began on Monday after the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir called for a 'separate Prime Minister' over BJP's claims of abrogating Article 370 and 35A.
Following which, Gambhir on Tuesday weighed in his opinion over the issue, where he denounced the NC leader saying that he needs a 'green Pakistani passport', moreover taking a jibe he added, if the Abdullah scion wants a 'separate PM' then he wants to 'walk on oceans and pigs to fly'
While addressing NC workers in Kasmir's Bandipore, Abdullah's statement came in response to the claims of BJP bigwigs of abrogating Article 370 and 35A from Kashmir to resolve its issue.
He said, "Modi said in an interview that by 2020, we will repeal article 35A. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had threatened us that Article 35a and Article 370 will be removed, but Jammu and Kashmir is not like the other states. Other states became a part of India without any conditions. We made conditions. We did not come for free."
"To maintain our identity distinct, we entered certain things in the Constitution. We said our identity would be ours, we will have our own law, our own flag. At that time we also had our President and Prime Minister, and we will bring that back," he added.
