Omar rules out rejoining NDA
New Delhi, Dec 21: Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has ruled out the possibility of his party National Conference (NC) rejoining the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) which it had quit after 2009 Lok Sabha elections.
He also rejected any chance of backing Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for the Prime Ministerial slot in the event of BJP projecting him as the party’s nominee for the top post.
Talking to media-persons here, Omar described the past alliance of his party with the NDA as “unnatural” and said there was no possibility in the future of a rethink on the NC returning to the BJP led grouping. “The NC’s relationship with NDA was not the one that should have evolved. It was actually an alliance between our party and the NDA led by Atal Behari Vajpayee who brought people together. I see no one in the NDA today even close to the credentials of Atal Behari Vajpayee and until anyone of that order is thrown up, there is no possibility of the NC joining the NDA,” he said.
