"I have seen a more powerful wave this time as compared to 2014", Modi said.

"The people of J&K are not the slaves of the Abdullahs and the Muftis whose three generations have ruled this state". Modi had criticised the Abdullah and Mufti families in his campaign during the elections in 2014 as well.

While the parliamentary poll is in full swing in India, PM Narendra Modi has addressed an audience at an election rally detailing why he prioritises security issues in his policies, as well as pondering on the soured ties with Pakistan. "This is how much Modiji believes what he says".

Mehbooba Mufti replied to Omar Abdullah's photo-tweet with one of her own.

PM Modi further lashed out at the Congress and its regional allies PDP and NC for forging an opportunist alliance that stands against the interests of the country and said, "The recent statements given by one of Congress' allies here asking for a separate Prime Minister for Jammu and Kashmir reveals how this alliance goes against our country".

Winx wins 33rd straight in final race
Earlier this week, however, Waller said he didn't think Winx had anything left to prove and he wasn't interested in taking her overseas.

"Some are threatening of two prime ministers, some are speaking the language of anti-nationals but I want to make it clear that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and their "vanshwaad" [dynasty rule] will not survive for long", he said. The bright future of J&K can be ensured only after their departure.

However, Mehbooba, the former chief minister of the state, whose party was in power from 2015 to 2018 in an alliance with the BJP, said the prime minister bashes political families before the elections and then sends envoys to stitch alliances with them afterwards.

The traditional BJP stance of scrapping Articles 370 and 35A of the Indian constitution - which give IHK its special status - has blown up into a huge political controversy. "The BJP, with its noxious agenda of banishing Muslims and minorities, wants to divide India", the PDP president wrote on Twitter.

"Pakistan has threatened us with nuclear, nuclear, nuclear", Modi told an election rally in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK). Parties and their leaders, who are not even contesting 40 seats, are dreaming of becoming the prime minister of the country, he added.

Observing that a war-kind of situation always prevailed during the BJP regime, Moily said, "Everytime the BJP comes to power, there is an escalation of hostility between India and Pakistan, it may be Kargil or attack on Indian Parliament under the Vajpayee government or Balakot and Pulwama under the current regime". He added that the PM was trying to mislead the people of the country with politically motivated falsehoods. "For the Congress, the Army is only a way of earning money", he added.
