SRINAGAR, Feb 10: National Conference vice president and former chief minister Omar Abdullah today said it will be premature to talk about any pre-poll alliance for the coming Lok Sabha and assembly elections.
Omar was asked by local news agency, KNS, about his reaction regarding Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s offer that they were ready for alliance with local parties in Jammu and Kashmir.
Former chief minister said, “Farooq sahib had no discussions with party leaders about any possible alliances so it would be premature for NC to react to this statement."
Rahul had said Congress was in favour of entering into electoral alliances wherever possible so that secular parties collectively take on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
It has been reported that Rahul has asked PCC chief G A Mir to explore possibilities of the alliance in Jammu and Kashmir for both Lok Sabha as well as assembly elections.
