Omar Abdullah on Friday took to Twitter slamming the BJP for using green instead of saffron in its campaign posters for Lok Sabha elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
Tweeting an image of a poster which was green in colour and promoted BJP candidate Khalid Jehangir, the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister said that the party cannot fool voters by using green instead of saffron when it is in Kashmir. He also questioned the party asking why it can't show its true colours while campaigning in the region.
"The saffron of the BJP turns green when it reaches Kashmir. I’m not sure whether the party truly believes it can fool voters when it makes a fool of itself like this. Why can’t they show their true colours while campaigning in the valley?"
Omar Abdullah was recently in a war of words with BJP's Gautam Gambhir and Nupur Sharma.
Omar Abdullah and Gautam Gambhir engaged in a spat over the former's promise to work for restoring the posts of "president" and "prime minister" in state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The BJP leader mocking the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that if Omar Abdullah wants a 'separate PM for Jammu and Kashmir' then 'I want to walk on oceans and pigs to fly'.
The Abdullah scion called out the former cricketer for 'displaying ignorance' and asked him to 'stick to the things he knows about', citing the IPL.
The social media verbal spat caught the attention of BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma who jumped to defend Gambhir and tweeted to ask the NC leader to stick to the stuff he knows - 'being a hotel receptionist'.
Posting a screengrab of her tweet on Wednesday, Omar Abdullah hit out at the "hypocrisy" of the BJP spokesperson, saying that he's "proud of how he started". Abdullah also reminded of her of their leader's humble origins that they brag about.
