“NC and Congress can win two seats if we work hard as PDP-BJP has decided to contest in alliance. If they (PDP-BJP) wouldn’t have contested together we could have won more seats. But now we can win only two seats if we work hard,” Saroori said.
“National Conference party should field candidates on all the 11 seats, Saroori suggested and added that we should not leave field open for PDP-BJP and was not in mood to make opponent’s victory easy.
