Farooq Abdullah, the president of the National Conference (NC), criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tenure, accusing him of fostering “institutionalisation of hate and prejudice” against minorities, especially Muslims.

Addressing an election rally in the Karnah constituency of Kupwara district, Abdullah stated, “Modi has forgotten that he is the prime minister of the entire country and not of a particular community. What came as a surprise is that he has given up all pretences and is openly spewing venom against Muslims at his rallies.”

Abdullah also criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying they won the 2014 Lok Sabha polls on promises concerning people’s issues but failed to deliver on those promises. “Today, when people are seeking answers from them on unemployment, development, and corruption, they turn a blind eye and resort to flaring communal tensions to gloss over their decade of misrule,” he added.

He accused the administration of harassing NC workers, claiming that elderly people as well as youngsters are being summoned to police stations and labelled as Hurriyat supporters. “In reality, they are trying to create fear among you. We do not have to fear them as tomorrow, their pride will go away. I want to tell the lieutenant governor to stop harassing people,” Abdullah said.
