Mahatma Gandhi’s India, not BJP’s India…’: Farooq Abdullah’s jibe at Centre

In his first political rally here since the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status last year, former chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday said it was the National Conference founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah who told the people that "this is our way and not that side" while joining India in 1947.

"We joined Mahatma Gandhi's India and not the BJP.

India where all religions are equal and every citizen whether rich or poor gets equal treatment and the only red line is that we have to respect each other, irrespective of our religion and choice of food and drink," he said.

Farooq was joined by son Omar Abdullah.

Omar said, after the abrogation of Article 370, the people in Kashmir are more alienated than before.
