New Delhi [India], Mar. 11 (ANI): The Congress on Saturday took a dig at National Conference leader Omar Abdullah asking him to focus on "Jammu and Kashmir issues" instead of shifting his focus to national politics. "I think it would be good if Omar Abdullah shifts his focus towards his state and its people, instead of commenting on national politics. He needs to focus less on Twitter. He is our friend, we respect him, but he needs to focus on National Conference and matters of Jammu and Kashmir," Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said here. The Congress' retort to its former ally in Jammu and Kashmir state came after Omar Abdullah, in a series of tweets, suggested that there needs to be a shift in strategy and creation of an alternate agenda to voters to counter the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). "Punjab, Goa & Manipur would certainly suggest that the BJP isn't unbeatable but strategy needs to shift from criticism to positive alternate," he said. "I've said this before & I'll say it again the voter needs to be given an alternative agenda that is based on what we will do better," he added. (ANI)
