Srinagar, Mar 5: NC leader Omar Abdullah said Tuesday the opposition parties need to switch strategies by focussing on issues such as rural distress and unemployment in order to deny Prime Minister Narendra Modi the space to “politicise” the Pulwama terror attack and the Balakot air strike.
The Indian air strike at a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant camp in Pakistan’s Balakot on February 26 came days after the suicide bombing in Pulwama, claimed by the JeM, in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
“The opposition parties need to switch tracks & deny the PM the space to politicise the recent militant attack/air strikes. The way to do it is to keep the messaging focused on the economy, rural distress, unemployment, agriculture & all the other things BJP doesn’t want discussed,” Abdullah wrote on his Twitter handle.
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir said every time opposition brought up the Pulwama militant attack or Balakot, they give an “opportunity” to the Prime Minister and the BJP to play to their strengths.
