Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 17: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah and People's Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday hit back at Union Home Minister Amit Shah over his 'Gupkar gang going global' comment.
Mufti accused the BJP of using "euphemism" and "stale tactic", while Abdullah pointed to the "frustration" of the minister at the Jammu and Kashmir alliance's decision to contest elections.
Taking to Twitter, Abdullah said, Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah reacted sharply on Tuesday to comments of Home Minister Amit Shah terming the People''s Alliance for Gupkar Declaration a "gang", and said the frustration stems from the political amalgam deciding to contest the forthcoming local body elections and not giving the BJP and its allies a free run.
Reacting to a series of tweets by Shah, Omar, who is also vice president of the National Conference, said, "We are not a gang Amit Shah Ji, we are legitimate political alliance having fought and continuing to fight election, much to your disappointment."
Taking a veiled dig at the newly formed Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party, Omar said, "I can understand the frustration behind this attack by the Hon''ble Home Minister. He had been briefed that the People''s Alliance was preparing to boycott elections. This would have allowed the BJP and newly formed King''s party a free run in J&K. We didn''t oblige them."
He said that only leaders in Jammu and Kashmir can be detained and called anti-national for participating in elections and supporting the democratic process.
"The truth is all those who oppose the ideology of the BJP are labelled ''corrupt and anti-national''," he tweeted.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is using 'Gupkar Gang' euphemism to project Gupkar alliance as anti-nationals.
"Old habits die hard. Earlier BJPs narrative was that the tukde tukde gang threatened India's sovereignty and they are now using 'Gupkar Gang' euphemism to project us as anti-nationals. Irony died a million deaths since its BJP itself that violates the Constitution day in and day out," she tweeted.
"Fighting elections in an alliance is also anti-national now. BJP can stitch as many alliances in its hunger for power but somehow we are undermining national interest by putting up a united front," she added.
Continuing her attack on BJP, she tweeted, "BJPs stale tactic of dividing India by projecting themselves as saviours & political opponents as internal & imagined enemies is far too predictable now. Love jihad, tukde tukde and now Gupkar Gang dominates the political discourse instead of like rising unemployment & inflation."
