‘Her `toffee, milk tag’ still haunting people’

JAMMU, Jan 7: National Conference (NC) vice-president and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti for describing her party’s quitting leaders as ‘garbage.’
He also said her ‘toffee and milk tag’ to youngsters was still haunting the people in the Valley.
Referring to prominent political leaders joining National Conference, Omar decried the statement of former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti who earlier this morning in Srinagar described her party’s quitting leaders as “garbage.” Omar said, “This speaks volumes about lowest depths of political discourse.”
While addressing his party workers at Sher-e-Kashmir Bhawan in a function, he said large scale desertions in the PDP were reflective of the anger among people for the miseries caused to them during the past three and half years. He also referred to Mehbooba Mufti’s observations about the BJP and its central leaders and said, “When in power she used to walk extra miles in praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, claiming that he was offering all assistance to the state even without asking.”
“Now Mehbooba Mufti is seeing everything bad in the BJP, in whose company her government inflicted scars and bruises to the public psyche, which are hard to be filled,” the former Chief Minister said and reiterated commitment of the National Conference in serving the people single-mindedly if given the mandate. He said Mehbooba’s ‘toffee and milk tag to youngsters of the valley’ was still haunting the people. He also took the BJP head-on for neglecting development and alienating the people of the state. He said disillusionment with the BJP was so grave that even its MP from Leh and several corporators in the LAHDC deserted it.
