NC suspends talks with Cong on DDC poll adjustments


Jammu, November 18: National Conference on Wednesday night announced suspension of talks with the Congress on electoral adjustments in the DDC polls in view of Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala’s statement yesterday that the party wasn’t part of the Gupkar Alliance.

“There are no talks going on between us and the Congress on seat sharing at this point of time. Surjewala’s irresponsible statement is unacceptable and reflects the confusion in the mind of Congress Party. They should clear the cobwebs in their mind and come out clearly on the issues pertaining to Jammu and Kashmir,’’ National Conference provincial president Devender Singh Rana said in a hard-hitting statement released tonight.

He said: “It is unfortunate that the Congress having ruled Jammu and Kashmir and the country for many years is ambiguous on certain basic issues concerning polity of the country. Since 1953, the dilly-dallying by the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir has done no good to the state either.
