In a bid to halt hawking of a possible pre-poll alliance with Congress, the NC working committee suggested everybody skip talking on it. In fact Dr Farooq Abdullah said he will talk to the Congress High Command on the issue.
Informed sources told Kashmir Life that the there were certain references towards the statements being made, almost in contradiction, the unanimous view was not to talk. “The general feeling was that it is too early to make such statements,” one insider said. “Finally, it was Dr Farooq Abdullah who said he will talk on this issue with the Congress High Command.”
The meeting that usually was supposed to be attended by its 31 members was a crowd as more than 50 participants were there. They were served Wazwaan and almost everybody spoke. “It was more of jubilation and everybody was showering praises over the party leadership,” another member said. “Most of the speeches were about the successful governance of last four years that helped coalition candidates to bag the victory.”
Party leadership, sources said, was happy that the alliance is strong and the feeling has percolated down to the grassroots. Members were asked to visit far and wide in the state and exhibit the alliance bonhomie, sources said.
