JAMMU, Mar 14: Cong has expressed its unhappiness over Omar Abdullah's overtures on Narendra Modi. The party has said that the Chief Minister has not only crossed the redline but is playing a double-game at the fag end of his tenure for his political survival.
Omar in a recent interview to a Kashmir based new agency, on alliance with the NDA, said that "though the people in the state don't know much about Modi and Gujarat but let us see."
This is being viewed in the political circles as opening of communication channels with Narendra Modi, as he is tipped to be the next Prime Minister as per the poll analysis of major media groups. "Omar has crossed the red-line with this. Congress doesn't want BJP to come to power, especially Modi, as we have our own view on him. Being a coalition partner he should accept and tow our line. The same Omar vouches for this friendship with Rahul Gandhi and now he is trying to extend hand of friendship to Modi. This double game can't be accepted by the Congress, " said a senior Cong leader.
According to sources, National Conference had already started getting close to the top BJP leadership in anticipation of BJP coming to powers. The coterie of Omar Abdullah has been especially assigned this task.
Congress has received information in this regard and would seek an explanation from Omar on his account. Cong feels that while the NC has been accusing People’s Democratic Party of hiring services of some individuals to close ties with the Modi, the same process has been started by Omar himself.
According to sources, Omar's statement may force Congress top reconsider its alliance for Lok Sabha elections. Cong sources said that party is already thinking of tying up the PDP after the next Assembly elections and this process could get further impetus if Omar continues to advance his overtures to BJP after the change in the Government at the Centre.
