Srinagar: Taking a dig at Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Suvendu Adhikari against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from Nandigram for his comment that if Trinamool Congress (TMC) will win again, the West Bengal (WB) will become Kashmir, National Conference (NC) Vice president Omar Abdullah said according to BJP leaders Kashmir has become paradise after August 5,2019.

He said anyway Bengalis love Kashmir and visit us in large numbers so we forgive you (Adhikari) for your stupid, tasteless comment.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter Omar said “But according to you BJP wallas Kashmir has become paradise after August 2019 so what's wrong with West Bengal becoming Kashmir? Anyway, Bengalis love Kashmir & visit us in large numbers so we forgive you your stupid, tasteless comment”.
Omar was reacting to reported statement of Adhiari which reads “If they (Trinamool Congress) come back to power, West Bengal will become Kashmir: Suvendu Adhikari, BJP candidate from Nandigram, during his speech at Muchipara, Behala yesterday”. (UNI)
