Omar Abdullah: Sonia Gandhi was informed about NC's decision 10 days back
New Delhi: Putting a very long term alliance to an end, the National Conference and Congress have decided to part their ways and fight the coming elections in Jammu and Kashmir on their own, an officials announcement revealed on Sunday.

The Congress made the announcement which forced Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to reveal that he had informed about National Conference’s decision to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi 10 days back.

"I met Gandhi 10 days ago (and) thanked her for all her support. I conveyed NC's decision to fight the (coming) elections alone," he tweeted, referring to the National Conference.

"I explained the reasons but also told her I wouldn't be making a public announcement because I didn't want it to look opportunistic," he said.

"For it to be spun now as a Cong(ress) decision is wrong (and) a complete distortion of the facts, not surprising but incorrect none the less," he added.

Senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni and Saifuddin Soz have announced that they will field their nominees in all 87 seats in the Assembly elections which are scheduled to be held here by the end of 2014.

Without naming its ally, Azad told the media: "Coalition politics is always a political compulsion and we have decided not to form any pre-poll alliance for the forthcoming state elections."

He, however, said the Congress will have "poll adjustments" with three parties in the Kashmir Valley: the Peoples Democratic Front (PDF) of Hakim Muhammad Yasin, the Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) of Ghulam Hassan Mir and the CPI-M, whose most prominent leader is Yusuf Tarigami.

Mir, Yasin and Tarigami are members of the 87-seat Kashmir Assembly.
