Omar Abdullah: Modi’s 2019 Move Exacerbated Resentment in IIOJK

Srinagar, National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah has stated that the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) decisions on August 5, 2019, which saw the illegal abrogation of the special status of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), have increased resentment and alienation among the region’s people.

According to Kashmir Media Service, speaking to reporters in Srinagar, Omar Abdullah pointed to Indian Home Minister Amit Shah’s announcement that the BJP would not field candidates in the Kashmir region for the ongoing Lok Sabha polls as an indication of the party’s failure to gain support following the 2019 move.

Omar Abdullah noted that it is perplexing why the BJP contested the 2019 elections in Jammu and Kashmir but now refrains from doing so. He interpreted this as an acknowledgment of the BJP’s inability to win over the people of Jammu and Kashmir since the illegal abrogation of Article 370.

Despite not fielding candidates in Kashmir, Abdullah remarked that the BJP is still actively involved in the political scene, orchestrating affairs from behind the scenes. He stressed that his struggle is not against individuals but against the tyranny imposed by New Delhi and its proxies.

The National Conference leader emphasized that the broader fight continues against those seeking to impose their will on the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He highlighted that the BJP’s failure to contest in the Kashmir region underscores the challenges facing the ruling party in garnering support and the growing discontent among the local population.

These remarks reflect the ongoing tension and political struggles in IIOJK following the BJP’s contentious 2019 decisions. Abdullah’s comments suggest that the BJP’s inability to contest in Kashmir is a consequence of the party’s missteps and the resulting alienation among the Kashmiri people.
