Hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi slammed the Abdullah’s and Muftis for “ruining” three generations of Jammu and Kashmir, PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday, 14 April, hit back at Modi saying the PM bashes political families before elections and then tries to ally with the same parties once polls are over.
Why does PM bash political families pre elections & then sends his envoys to stitch alliances with the very same parties? NC in 99 & PDP in 2015. Why do they choose power over Article 370 then ? BJP with its noxious agenda of banishing Muslims & minorities wants to divide India https://t.co/8vNDz6WmjJ

“BJP with its noxious agenda of banishing Muslims and minorities wants to divide India,” she alleged.
Earlier during the day, PM Modi had said during a rally in Kathua that the two families “ruined” three generations of Jammu and Kashmir and he will not allow them to “divide” India.
The prime minister was referring to National Conference leader Omar Abdullah’s demand for a separate prime minister for Jammu and Kashmir.
He also targeted the Congress for the migration of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley and said his government was committed to settle the displaced community in their native places and that work has started in this direction.
The prime minister also hit out at Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for skipping Saturday’s event to pay respect to martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.
On doubts raised by some Opposition leaders on the Balakot air strikes, Modi said Congress has never trusted valour of Indian armed forces.
He said the wave in favour of the BJP was stronger this time than in 2014.
According to opinion polls and surveys, the BJP will get thrice the seats that Congress will win, he said.
By coming out to vote in large numbers in Baramulla and Jammu, voters have given a befitting reply to terrorist leaders and opportunists, he added.
