Putting ball in PDP’s court, formally, National Conference Tuesday decided to write to Governor NN Vohra extending their support to PDP, largest political party, on government formation in the State.
National Conference MLA-elect, Nazir Ahmed Gurezi told CNS that during a meeting at party headquarters in Srinagar, it was decided that working president Omar Abdullah will formally write a letter to the Governor of the State in which the party will inform the Governor about its unconditional support to the People’s Democratic Party.
Sources said that National Conference working president Omar Abdullah presided a party meeting in which top leaders including Ali Muhammad Sagar, Abdul Rahim Rather, Sakina Itoo, Davinder Singh Rana, Altaf Ahmed Kaloo, Muhammad Akbar Lone and other party leaders were present.
Sources said that besides, evaluating the performance of the party in different assembly segments across Jammu and Kashmir in the meeting, some leaders suggested that the party should write a formal letter to PDP offering them unconditional support in government formation. However, sources added that some leaders opposed the idea and it was accordingly shelved.
Sources added that some party leaders suggested that instead of writing to PDP, it was convenient to inform about the support to PDP in writing to the Governor of the State.
“The party working president Omar Abdullah will write a letter to the Governor of the State in which he will intimate him about the unconditional support that NC is ready to offer to PDP for government formation in the State,” Gurezi said adding that during the meeting it was felt that Grand Alliance is the best possible solution to end the present stalemate in the state.
