Recently, former Indian opener, Gautam Gambhir joined Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) and soo after that he has clarified that he would not at all shy away from making bold comments every now and then. He has often been known for his political comments and that played a crucial role in him joining the best sector after hanging up his boots from the game. Through his latest statement, Gambhir has taken a huge dig at former Jammu & Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah.

Time and again, Gambhir and Abdullah have been involved in Twitter banters and this time the duo clashed over the latter’s comments on ‘Separate PM for Jammu & Kashmir’. Gautam mocked Abdullah by saying that he ‘needs some sleep followed by a strong coffee!’ He then went on to suggest that Abdullah should shift to Pakistan over his remarks that his party would strive to restore Jammu & Kashmir’s autonomy with a separate ‘Wazir-e-Azam’ (prime minister).

Gambhir went further by mocking Abdullah’s proposal as he said that the former Chief Minister wants a separate Prime Minister for the state, then he wants to walk on the ocean and see pigs flying.

In his tweet, Gautam said, “Omar Abdullah wants a separate PM for J&K [and] I want to walk on oceans! Omar Abdullah wants a separate PM for J&K [and] I want pigs to fly! More than a separate PM Omar Abdullah needs some sleep followed by a strong coffee! If he still doesn’t understand then a green Pakistani passport”.

On Monday, Abdullah grabbed a lot of eyeballs by stating that state had appointed its prime minister and Sadar-i-Riyasat [head of the state] right after Independence and he would like the same system to return.

However,Abdullah was quick to respond to Gambhir’s tweet, saying that the former cricketer should maintain his focus only towards cricket. 

Abdullah wrote, “I never played much cricket because I knew I wasn’t very good at it. You don’t know very much about J&K, it’s [sic] history or the role of [Jammu & Kashmir National Conference] in shaping that history yet you insist on displaying that ignorance for all to see. Stick to stuff you know about, tweet about the IPL.”

In order to take another dig, Gambhir hit back at Abdullah again. He said that the mass of Kashmir and the country would have been better ruled by selfless governance. His tweet read: “Never mind your lack of cricketing prowess but Kashmiris and our country would have been well served if you knew a thing or two about selfless governance.”
