New Delhi: National Conference president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah, who is also the chairman of the five-party People's Alliance for Gupkar Declaration (PAGD), said after the Delimitation Commission meeting here that he would brief the grouping as well as his party colleagues of the deliberations of the commission.

"We attended the meeting for the first time because we wanted the voice of people of Jammu and Kashmir to be heard. The meeting took place in cordial manner and we all were explained the method adopted for coming to the conclusion," Abdullah said. "I will discuss with my senior party leaders before sending our views to the commission. We have also not been told about the seats that they are reserving for Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes," he said.
