National Conference president Farooq Abdullah who is not new to making controversial statements has once again surrounded himself with controversies. On Monnday (11 Maarch 2019), questioned ECs decision and asked that if the environment in his state was conducive for Lok Sabha polls, then why not for the Assembly polls. He further raised questions on Indian Air Force Air strike on Pakistan which destroyed many camps of terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed. This strike was launched after Pakistan fed terrorist organisations Jem took responsibilty of Pulwama attack (14 February 2019).
Mr. Farooq said- “We always knew that there would be a fight or a skirmish with Pakistan. This surgical strike (airstrike) was done as elections are approaching. We lost an aircraft worth crores. Be thankful that the pilot (IAF) survived & returned from Pakistan with respect.”

Here are the reactions on the controversial statement.
Soon after he made this statement, many angry reactions poured in. Some blamed him for increasing communal tensions whereas some labelled him anti-national.
Dear Abdullah ji, what about Kashmir grabbing huge share from federal govt every year by way of “support” and return nothing to the nation by way of tax…Or the money that GoI spending on your z+ security each year….can we talk about that “worth crores” ?

No Election was there at the time of Uri surgical strikes.
So Mr. Abdulla stop propagating such lies and prove that he’s not a Pakistan supporter.
Or his pain for Pakistan exceeds his success in india.
The time for coercive politics is gone.
Ask the Hurriyat and other fringes

@OmarAbdullah since your father knew that there would be a fight with Pakistan, did he also know that crpf jawans were to get killed? He could have used his vision to save the lives of our heroes. Isn’t it!!

He is being relevant by making irrelevant comments. Unfortunately media is giving platform to these guys to make senseless comments pertaining to our national security.Mufti’s and Abdulla’s are known for milking sensitive issues for their political fortunes .

What does he mean? We should buy aircraft worth crores, but not use it to defend ourself when required. How do they even become a leader. Has he even taken his basic education seriously?

Thankful to? Pakistan? Imran? India knows what happened to our forces when crossed & you people had a say
Now that you ppl are isolated and @narendramodi holds the chair, Pakistan & terrorists are made to bleed and do what they are told, by India’s military & diplomatic might.
