On which National Conference chief Omar Abdullah dared Madhav and central government to prove the instructions from Pakistan.
“I dare you @rammadhavbjp ji to prove your allegation. You have RAW, NIA & IB at your command (CBI too is your parrot) so have the guts to place evidence in the public domain. Either prove this or be man enough to apologise. Don’t practice shoot & scoot politics,” dared Abdullah.
"You come along with nothing but baseless allegations and say whatever you like with no evidence of it. If you have guts, prove it."
After which Ram Madhav took a U-turn from his statement. “Just landed@Aizawl n saw this. Now that u deny any external pressure I take back my comment, but, now that u proved it was genuine love btw NC n PDP that prompted a failed govt formation attempt,u shud fight next elections 2gether. 😂Mind you it’s pol comment, not personal,” tweeted Ram Madhav.
He responded to Omar Abdullah's attack on social media.
“No, misplaced attempts at humour won’t work. You HAVE claimed my party has been acting at the behest of Pakistan. I dare you to prove it! Place the evidence of your allegation of NC boycott of ULB polls at Pak behest in the public domain. It’s an open challenge to you & your Govt,” Abdullah attacked Ram Madhav on Twitter.
Earlier on Thursday, Ram Madhav alleged PDP and NC over their alliance, calling it instructions from across the border.
"PDP and NC boycotted local body polls last month because they had instructions from across the border. Probably they had fresh instructions from across the border to come together and form a government. What they did prompt the governor to look into the whole issue," Mr Madhav told news agency ANI.
Jammu and Kashmir Governer Satya Pal Malik have said that he never wanted a horse trading in the state and hence he has dissolved the assembly. Governor Malik's decision to dissolve the assembly has been questioned by opposition parties who have alleged that he acted after consulting the ruling BJP at the centre.
