Srinagar, Dec 1: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah hit out at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over the latter's speech delivered at a rally in Jammu on Sunday. Abdullah took on Modi on the issue of Article 370 for the state of Jammu and Kashmir (Modi questioned it), alleged discrimination between men and women in the state (Modi asked whether Abdullah's sister and he had enjoyed the same rights) and tourism (Modi said the famous tourism industry of Jammu and Kashmir was suffering and people were going to other states like Himachal Pradesh).

Abdullah said in his tweets that Modi is "either badly informed or very economical with the truth." He also took a dig at Modi, saying the latter used the names of him and his sister "to illustrate a point that has no bearing in truth".

He also mocked the crowd size at Modi's rally in Jammu.
