Srinagar: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Sunday hit out at BJP leader Suvendhu Adhikari for his remarks that West Bengal will become like Kashmir if the Trinamool Congress came back to power in the state.

“But according to you BJP wallas Kashmir has become paradise after August 2019 so what’s wrong with West Bengal becoming Kashmir? Anyway, Bengalis love Kashmir & visit us in large numbers so we forgive you your stupid, tasteless comment,” Omar said in a tweet.

The former J-K chief minister was reacting to Adhikari’s reported statement that West Bengal would become like Kashmir if the TMC returned to power in the assembly elections.

Adhikari, a former TMC leader, is contesting against his former boss Mamata Banerjee from the Nandigram seat.

  1. People visit kashmir to see scenic beauty and experience weather. Also they come to see how you (gang) ruined it politically & socially! Also they come to see how you guys will be dumped completely to bring back the glory of land of Kashyap

  2. Mr Abdullah why r u agitated with the remarks of BJP leader. He has gathered courage to tell the truth to Bengali Hindus because your father failed to save our miniscule harmless community from the atrocities perpetuated by Islamic fundamentalists fully supported by the then Statev Government headed by your so called secular leader. Kashmir without Kashmiri pandits is a mirror for Bengali Hindus .

  3. Hindus are not able to live in kashmir valley Abdullaah, what you are doing about it?, Suvendhu is right once it exceeds certain threshold muslims, rest of the communities can’t live there , we have seen in pakistan and in kashmir.

    this non-hyphanetd journailists also avoid writing about lack of hindu in valley.

  4. With the illegal infiltrations from Bangladesh, west Bengal is going through a massive demographic change and it will be another kashmir soon. Certain community, wherever they are, when they are a sizeable minority, starts their separatist agitation under one pretext or another. BJP leader told the truth.
