”Today we are getting threat after threat. ..We have the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service. So, I would not need to go to Delhi or Amritsar to cross the Wagah border ....I will get a ticket from here to Muzaffarabad, because I will not stop opposing Modi,” Omar said while addressing an election rally on Monday in Anantnag district.

Giriraj Singh has already been slammed by top BJP leadership. Modi himself took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to urge the BJP leaders to refrain from any such divisive and thoughtless comments.

“Those who want to stop Narendra Modi (from becoming prime minister) are looking towards Pakistan. In the coming days, they will have no place in India. They will only have place in Pakistan,” Giriraj Singh had said.

Two FIRs have been filed against the BJP leader till date in this regard.  However, Giriraj remained defiant and defended his contentious statement, which made him a butt of all the jokes on the Twitter world with a host of eminent politicians and personalities also condemning his insensitive remarks.
