Abdullahs change colour as polls hint at Modi's return

Early Times Report
Jammu, May 3: Sensing victory of BJP-led NDA in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls despite last three phases of the election yet to take place, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah has started softening his tone and tenor for the saffron party besides turning his guns towards alliance partner Congress.
Omar Abdullah has suddenly started questioning Congress party's election campaign in Jammu and Kashmir saying it was inexplicable that the opposition party conceded a "walkover" to the BJP as far as optics were concerned.
In a series of tweets, Omar said, "The Congress was in with a fighting chance in 4 of the 6 seats and in 3 of these the BJP was the main opponent. It's inexplicable how the BJP was simply given a walkover as far as the optics of the campaign were concerned."
The former Chief Minister, whose party was part of UPA II and has supported Congress candidates on both seats of Jammu as well as on Ladakh, said the lack of presence of top Congress leaders on campaign trail in Jammu and Kashmir spoke a lot about their approach to the State. "It says a lot about the Congress party & its approach to J&K. There hasn't been a single election meeting by its leadership," he tweeted.
Besides criticizing Congress leadership, Omar Abdullah on the other hand virtually praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah for infusing spirit among the party workers by addressing several rallies in the State.
"Contrast this with the number of rallies addressed by Modi ji & Amit Shah. They may not have come to the Valley but they didn't ignore the State," he added.
According to the political observers, the sudden U-turn of NC leadership towards arch rival BJP and alliance partner Congress speaks of opportunistic approach of Abdullahs who have been shifting loyalty with change in power at New Delhi.
Further, the observes predicted, Omar's statement is a clear indication that NC would prefer to join hands with BJP than Congress in case of hung verdict in the next Assembly elections, whenever the same are held. In the next few days, similar such statements praising Modi and criticizing Congress are likely to be given by Farooq Abdullah also, the observers added.
