‘ODOMOS’ is overdose of ‘only Modi only Shah’: Omar Abdullah
Shimla: National Conference leader Omar Abdullah Monday coined a new acronym to target the BJP.
Omar said that the country was suffering from too much “ODOMOS- overdose of only Modi only Shah”.
“While the rest of the country suffers from too much ODOMOS – overdose (of) only Modi only Shah,” the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir tweeted.
BJP chief Amit Shah Monday said for the Congress OROP means ‘only Rahul, only Priyanka’, using the acronym for ‘one rank, one pension’ scheme for military personnel to take a jibe at the Congress.
Shah hurled the jibe at the Congress days after party president Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi was inducted as the opposition party’s general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh.
The BJP president was addressing a “BJP PannaPramukSammelan” at Hamirpur, also known as “Martyrs’ Land” in Himachal Pradesh owing to a significant number of people from the district and adjoining areas joining the Army.
Thanking Himachal Pradesh voters for ensuring victory of BJP candidates in all the four LokSabha seats in the hill state during the 2014 general elections, Shah said, “The Modi government implemented OROP for ex-servicemen in true sense.”
No one cared for soldiers for over 70 years but when the Modi government came to power, it implemented the OROP, he added.
However, the Congress also follows OROP, which is “Only Rahul Only Priyanka Shah sarcastically said. He was referring to the One Rank, One Pension scheme to equalise pension payments for retired military personnel in the country to take a dig at the opposition party over the induction of Priyanka Gandhi as a key office bearer.
But the jibe at the Congress was returned by National Conference leader Omar Abdullah.
In his address to BJP workers ahead of the 2019 LokSabha polls, Shah said, “DeshekMajbootSarkarchahtahai, majboorsarkarnahi. (The country wants a strong government not a weak and hapless one).”
The country wants a government which can give Pakistan a befitting reply for killing its soldiers, he said.
“In his speeches, the Congress president nowadays brings up the issue of poverty. I just want to ask Rahul baba what the Congress governments did for decades to eradicate poverty. It’s only the BJP government which is taking measures to eradicate it,” he added.
They couldn’t provide even a gas cylinder to each household in the country, he claimed. (PTI)
