Advising Congress to continue to raise the issues which forced the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on the defensive, former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said national security and religion are the strongest areas of any BJP campaign.
Taking to micro blogging site twitter, working president of National Conference (NC) Mr Abdullah said “ National Security & Religion (particularly Hinduism & all things related to it) are the strongest areas of any BJP campaign”.
He further tweeted that “ The Congress would do well to remember that while they have all their spokespersons & leaders talking/tweeting about what a good Hindu Rahul is”. But, he said, “The Congress can’t win the “we are better Hindus than the BJP” argument so better to get back to talking about issues that had the BJP on the defensive”.
Abdullah also re-tweeted a tweet of former union minister and Congress leader P Chidambaram “BJP is indeed the winner in UP and congratulations are in order, but is winning about 28% of all contested posts a ‘sweep’?.
