Don`t be afraid of opposing winds, Farooq tells Rahul, Omar
Srinagar: Union Minister for Renewable Energy and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah Thursday had a piece of advice for both Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi and his son and Chief Minister Omar Abdullah.
He advised Rahul Gandhi and Omar Abdullah to stand steadfast in the face of opposition and criticism.
"Don`t be afraid of opposing winds. These always blow to raise you higher. You must face opposition with fortitude. The enemies of peace and progress will always be there, but you have to face them with strength and fortitude," the elder Abdullah told the two at Sonamarg.
Welcoming Rahul Gandhi at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Z-Morh tunnel in Sonamarg area of north Kashmir`s Ganderbal district, Farooq Abdullah said he recalled how his father, Sheikh Abdullah, and Rahul Gandhi`s grandfather, Pandit Nehru, had joined hands to make Kashmir the crown and glory of India.
