Omar Abdullah also tweeted a photograph of PM Modi hugging Mehbooba Mufti's father, the late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, to drive home his point. "They threaten India with a separate Prime Minister and also separation of the state from the country".
Taking a cue from his remarks during the campaign in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua region, former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted saying, "India is not Modi and Modi isn't India". "They can bring their entire clan into field, can abuse Modi as much as they want but they won't be able to divide this nation", he added. "With heavy voting in Jammu and Baramulla, you have given a strong response to the terrorists and opportunists", said the prime minister.
In a series of two tweets, Mehbooba Mufti called out the BJP and said that first they would call them traitors and at the second moment, they would be forging an alliance.
Starting his speech by paying a tribute to Dr BR Ambedkar on the latter's birth anniversary, Modi said that there is still a BJP wave across the country. In 2019 Modiji says, "We have to rid J&K of these two political families". "This is a new India and it will strike terrorists well inside their hideouts across the border", he warned. The Congress and its allies keep politics above the security of the country. India claims that before going down, the Indian MiG-21 had also downed an F-16 from the Pakistani air force, while Pakistan denies it.
In Aligarh, Modi raised the issue of nationalism, a key plank of the BJP's outreach to voters.
The PM said that wrong policies of the Congress led to the mass exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in 1989.
"They [Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party] have fielded such candidates in this election who have reservation over Vande Matram". "I had personally approached the Prime Minister several times over the last two years to seek support for ensuring that the centenary of the historic event is observed in a befitting manner but the central government had failed to respond suitably", the Punjab CM said. "In order to gain sympathy & consequently power, PM is misleading people by equating himself with the nation".
