Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has followed her new ally Omar Abdullah's suit and taken on BJP's Ram Madhav over his claim that both PDP and National Conference boycotted the recent Jammu and Kashmir local body polls on the instructions of Pakistan.

Taking to Twitter, Mehbooba Mufti has written:

Earlier in the day, Omar Abdullah had entered into a heated tête-à-tête with Ram Madhav. Here is their conversation in sequential order:

Ram Madhav: "PDP&NC boycotted local body polls last month because they had instructions from across the border.Probably they had fresh instructions from across the border to come together & form govt.What they did prompted Guv to look into the whole issue: Ram Madhav on J&K assembly dissolved"

Omar Abdullah: I dare you @rammadhavbjp ji to prove your allegation. You have RAW, NIA & IB at your command (CBI too is your parrot) so have the guts to place evidence in the public domain. Either prove this or be man enough to apologise. Don’t practice shoot & scoot politics.

Ram Madhav: Just take it in your stride @OmarAbdullah Not questioning your patriotism at all. But d sudden love between NC n PDP n d hurry to form government leads to many suspicions n political comments. Not to offend u.

Omar Abdullah: No, misplaced attempts at humour won’t work. You HAVE claimed my party has been acting at the behest of Pakistan. I dare you to prove it! Place the evidence of your allegation of NC boycott of ULB polls at Pak behest in public domain. It’s an open challenge to you & your Govt.

At this point, Omar Abdullah addressed a news briefing where he launched into a blistering tirade against Ram Madhav.

Ram Madhav: Just landed@Aizawl n saw this. Now tht u deny any external pressure I take back my comment, bt, now tht u proved it ws genuine love btw NC n PDP tht prompted a failed govt formation attempt,u shud fight nxt elections 2gether. Mind u it’s pol comnt,not personal
