Decision will help BJP in polls: Omar

Even as the Congress has accused the government of being slow in getting JeM chief Masood Azhar blacklisted by the United Nations, its ally and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said his designation as global terrorist could not have come at a better time for BJPs re-election campaign and opposition must be wondering if it would ever catch a break.

“The rest of the Opposition must be wondering if it will ever catch a break. Every time the BJP campaign seems to be flagging, it gets a shot in the arm. The Masood Azhar development in the UN couldn’t have come at a better time for the Modi ji’s re-election campaign”, Abdullah said in a tweet after Azhar was blacklisted.
