Coalition strong: Farooq
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 15: The Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy and National Conference patron, Farooq Abdullah, on Saturday said the NC-Congress coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir was stable.
“There are no differences between the two partners and they are working in close harmony,” Dr Farooq told reporters here. Reacting to the statement attributed to his younger brother and legislator, Sheikh Mustafa Kamal and other party leaders about alliance with Congress was a “compulsion,”
Dr Farooq said, “Such reports are mischievous and are intended to project differences in the coalition when none exist.”
The government, he maintained, was running smoothly. “In the past 16 months there has not been a single incident of discord between the partners and both the partners have taken bold decisions with consensus,” he said.
Dr Farooq said that since the NC led coalition government took over the reins of the state 23 cabinet meetings have taken place in which some major decisions have been taken and there has been no disagreement on any issue within the cabinet. “This by itself is an index of the smooth functioning of the government and the coordination among the partners,” he said.
The National Conference President said the four individuals quoted by media had no mandate whatsoever to speak on behalf of the National Conference and views expressed by them are their personal. “Party leadership doesn’t endorse their views,” he added.
Dr Farooq said, only the President and the General Secretary of the party were authorized to speak on behalf of the party.
