Omar slams BJP, says CAA notification a Ramadan gift to Muslims

The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Party Vice President Omar Abdullah on Tuesday said that “BJP has given Ramadan gift to Muslims by notifying CAA which is against the very foundation of our constitution”.

He said this while talking to the press at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha. Omar Abdullah said that notifying (CAA) days before the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections shows the BJP is not confident about winning 400 seats in the ensuing polls. “It is evident that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants to use religion in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

“It was passed in 2019, but notifying the CAA (rules) just a few days before the bugle of elections is to be blown, perhaps makes it clear what their aim is. They were saying that after the construction of the Ram Temple, they cannot lose. But perhaps they feel that their position is weak and that is why they have to use these new weapons to sway gullible voters,” he told reporters. 

He further emphasized that BJP wants to use religion in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. “Muslims have always been a target of the BJP, which is not something new for the party. Even in the CAA, Muslims have been made a specific target. This is not new for the BJP as this has been their approach before as well. It seems they want to use the politics of polarization in the upcoming elections,” he said.
