No to pre-poll alliance with Cong: Kamal


KL Report


National Conference Tuesday claimed that Congress is eager to have a pre-poll alliance with NC but the party has decided not to forge any kind of alliance with Congress.

Addressing media persons at party headquarters in Srinagar, Additional General Secretary of National Conference Shiekh Mustafa Kamal said that at least 20,000 National Conference leaders and workers were “butchered” during militancy. “Our committed workers do not want any kind of alliance with Congress party and we can’t deceit them and play with their sentiments,” Kamal said  adding “Soz has hinted indirectly that Congress party wanted a pre-poll alliance with NC after he suggested that elections should be contested taken as friendly game.”

Kamal said that NC would contest the 2014 assembly elections on the pattern of previous polls. “There is no question about it (pre-poll alliance) and there is absolutely no possibility of doing it,” Kamal said adding that NC would fight the ensuing polls single-handedly as the party had a strong base in the state.

Replying to a question Kamal said that State Congress president Saif-u-Din Soz acted like “a child” by sounding rigging alarm. “We forged an alliance with Congress party to run the government and now we are not going to forge an alliance with this party,” he said.

Kamal said that he does not have any faith in New Delhi as Central Government never tried to take Kashmir’s on board. “We all know what happened to the recommendations made by interlocutors. There is trust deficit and it will be always their till New Delhi not change its policy on Kashmir,” he said.
