Srinagar: Omar Abdullah, vice president of the National Conference, stated on Friday that political opponents are not enemies and politics is not about enmity and discord.
His comments were in reaction to a video posted on twitter wherein a netizen hinted that some backdoor understanding may take place between the National Conference (NC) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Jammu and Kashmir BJP chief Ravinder Raina in a video described Abdullah a “jewel” among the leading politicians in the Union territory.
“As I became a member of the assembly when Omar was also there, we saw that as an individual, as a person, Omar Abdullah is a gem among the top political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir… so we are friends as well,” Raina said.
He further praised Abdullah and said when I became the victim of the coronavirus, he was the first person who called me.
Responding to the tweet, the NC leader said politicians do not need to see each other as enemies personally, despite their different political outlooks.
“Why is politics all about division and hatred? Where does it say that to disagree politically we also have to hate each other personally? ” I have political opponents, but I don’t have enemies,” he said in a series of tweets.
“I’m grateful for Ravinder’s kind words and I’m glad they won’t stop us opposing each other,” he added.
