Cong petitions Sonia: ‘Please intervene’

Soz chairs 7-hour meet; Deliberations to continue today

Srinagar, Sep 6: While the crucial Coalition Coordination Committee (CCC) meeting remained inconclusive, the Pradesh Congress Committee has petitioned the All India Congress Committee (AICC) President Sonia Gandhi over Chief Minister Omar Abdullah’s nomination to the KAHDC.
Meanwhile, a marathon seven-hour long meeting of Congress ministers chaired by the PCC chief Prof Saifudin Soz here failed to evolve a consensus on as to whether there should be a coalition in the KAHDC.
Talking to Greater Kashmir over phone, Congress leader from Kargil, Asghar Karbalai said they have written a letter to Sonia Gandhi seeking her intervention into the “unethical and unconstitutional” move nominating four members into the council by the Chief Minister. “We hope a positive response from the party high command,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prof Soz summoned all Congress ministers to the residence of Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand here to discuss the issue threadbare and devise a future strategy.
“We are discussing the issue for the past seven hours. We are in touch with NC and talks are on,” Prof Soz said, late in the evening.
Sources said Soz will continue to chair the meeting of Congress ministers on Saturday also. “Majority of the ministers raised the point as to why the Chief Minister was reluctant in convening the Cabinet meet on the KAHDC issue. They also said Congress should pull out from the Coalition on moral grounds,” sources privy to the meeting said. “However, Soz urged the ministers to keep their cool and no decision should be taken in haste.”
