jammu, Jan 21: A senior leader of the Peoples Democratic Party has allegedly taunted former Chief Minister and National Conference, Vice President, Omar Abdullah putting both the PDP and NC into awkward situation in the so called Peoples Alliance for Gupkar Declaration.
The PDP leader, who during the government led by the party was also holding a key charge at a office dealing with the welfare of women, has taken to social media to take a dig at the NC Vice President seemingly asking him to join the party led by Mehbooba Mufti.
"When a politician says he feels demotivated after 5th aug, motivate him to join majority and lead them to achieve what was stolen decades before," said the PDP leader, who has also remained a journalist in the past, on the social media.
The post came a few days after Omar in an interview to a news portal said that he is struggling with the question of whether he should continue in politics. Omar Abdullah had said that he was "deeply jaded and demotivated".
"I'm deeply jaded, I'm demotivated, I'm questioning continuing in politics, I've never been like this, I'm a changed person," Omar had said.
"I find it very difficult to motivate myself, I have lost motivation. A certain light inside may not have been switched off but it's a lot dimmer. I have never been like this," the NC Vice President had added in the interview.
Sources said the PDP leader has an "old grudge" against Omar Abdullah.
The sources said when Omar Abdullah was the Chief Minister, FIR was registered against the said PDP leader for having criticized the then National Conference government.
"That time the NC government knew that she (PDP leader) was working for the Muftis and thus she was duly booked but now when both the NC and the PDP are partners in the PAGD, she should have kept silent," said a politician.
Sources said some of the NC leaders were planning to seek an explanation from the PAGD for alleged insult of their leader.
Despite repeated attempts the PDP leader was not available for comments.
