New Delhi, Aug 21: A war of words erupted on Twitter between former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav over the situation prevailing in the Kashmir valley.
This began with Omar leading a delegation of Opposition legislators to meet President Pranab Mukherjee and urged him to initiate a credible and meaningful process of political dialogue without any further delay involving all stakeholders to address the political issues in the state.
Minutes after the meeting, Madhav took a potshot at Omar, saying talk of political solution is only to score political points.
"They talk of political solution bt nvr clarify what it is 2 d rants of Azadi. In power they nvr offered it when stones were pelted at them," he said in a series of tweets.
"Talk of political solution is only to score political points. They did nothing to help State bring normalcy. In stead helped spread unrest. When govt hosted the I-Day in all districts n Ministers went 2 hoist tricolour most of d worthies were simply absent. That's political solution," he said.
Omar responded: "Why don't you name us instead of just these snide, sly tweets? I challenge you to prove that any of us spread unrest. We have offered you solutions both while in power & out of it but you are deaf to what you don't like hearing!," he said in a series of tweets.
"What is it about us meeting the Hon'ble President that has both @BJP4India & @jkpdp lashing out at us? Is meeting President anti-national?," he asked in another tweet.
