NC-CONG LEADERS BEING SUMMONED TO NEW DELHI
KASHMIR NEWS SERVICE
Srinagar, Jan 1: Senior functionaries of National Conference and Congress would soon be summoned to New Delhi to prevent the bickering between the party leaders from taking an ugly turn, sources said on Saturday.
They said differences within the coalition have turned soar due to provocative and unnecessary statements by the leaders of Congress and NC.
“The silence of the Congress high command over the statement of its senior leader Mangat Ram Sharma who had publicly demanded post of the Chief Ministership for the party for the next 3-years has left the NC puzzled,” sources added.
However, they said that in view of the internal bickering, NC would soon hold the meeting of its core group.
The senior NC leader Chaudhary Muhammad Ramzan tried to play down the matter saying the statements by the leaders of his party and Congress were their personal views. However, he maintained that Omar Abdullah would complete his 6-year term.
The decision to give Chief Ministership to Omar was taken by the Central High Command after discussion with the senior leaders of both the coalition partners. Nobody can change the decision. “Instead of internal bickerings it is high time for our coalition partners to strengthen Omar Abdullah for effective governance,” Ramzan stated.
Another senior NC leader Sheikh Ghulam Rasool also maintained that Omar Abdullah would complete his term.
The Congress high command, including the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, have extended their support to Omar Abdullah to complete his term as per the agreement. They are of the view that Omar governed the state in trying times and when the normalcy has returned, there is no justification in seeking end to his term in contravention of the agreement.
Sources said to end the internal bickering, the Central High Command would soon summon the leaders of both the parties to prevent further damage in relationship of the coalition partners.
