Congress begging NC for alliance PDP jumps in
6/26/2019 11:27:46 PM
Since the National Conference is eager to represent all the six seats in the Lok Sabha it is indifferent to the alliance with the state unit of the Congress. Yes, the National Conference may frame an alliance with the state unit of the Congress in the ensuing Assembly poll so that the NC could frame a coalition Government with the Congress. That suits it with the guarantee that it may not lose power. The Congress state unit meeting was held under former chief minister and Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad witnessed arguments in favour and against the possible alliance with National Conference (NC) in the upcoming parliament polls. State Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir has stated that the ball was in NC's court and it was up to them whether they want to honestly defeat the "divisive forces" or tacitly support them.
Congress has at the national level appealed to every party to join hands with the party to stop BJP. In J&K, like the rest of the country, the parties are bound to prove whether they are really against BJP or not. The Congress leadership in posterity, every party would be judged by the role they play in the upcoming elections. "If any party is honestly in favour of a coalition then they should be ready to compromise to some extent on seat sharing. If they aren't then they are helping the BJP tacitly," Mir said. He said the names of candidates for the first phase would be out shortly. The rest of the candidates will be announced in a phase wise by the central committee. Meanwhile, sources in the party said the alliance with NC was discussed in the meeting with certain leaders echoing the concerns on according more seats to the NC.
Sources said that certain leaders in the party had been asking the party high command not to completely surrender before NC and that a favourable alliance for the Congress should be stitched. Meanwhile PDP has started lobbying for an alliance with the Congress. It depends on Omar and Farooq Abdullah to draw the final route.
Azad, who heads the Election and Campaign Committee, was ready to accord four seats to the NC in lieu of his future Rajya Sabha seat. Many leaders in Jammu have expressed reservations against granting four seats to NC. The high command needs to think about the party not the individual leaders securing their future the leader said. Last week, in Jammu a group of party leaders had urged the high command to not stitch an alliance with NC as the party had a good chance to win in all three regions of the State.
