Kept our doors open, but Mehbooba Mufti closed it: Omar Abdullah on alliance with PDP

Srinagar, Apr 03 (KNS): Responding to PDP chief remarks over fielding candidates from all Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir, National Conference Vice-President Omar Abdullah Wednesday said “We have kept the door open, and if she has closed it then it is not our fault”.

Omar Abdullah as per Kashmir News Service (KNS) said that if Mehbooba Mufti has decided to field candidates from all seats of Kashmir then it is her choice. He said we have kept the door open for reconciliation and unity, but if she has closed it then it is not our fault.
“If PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has announced to field candidates on all 5 seats, it is her choice. We have fielded candidates on 3 seats in Kashmir based on her formula. If she is fielding her own candidates then perhaps she does not want any kind of alliance even for the assembly elections. We kept the door open, now if she has closed the door then it is not our fault,” Omar Abdullah said.
He added the decision of Mehbooba Mufti depicts that PDP is not willing to go for alliance in Assembly elections also.
“We used PDP’s formula. We fielded candidates from those constituencies where NC had won previous LS elections,” Omar added. (KNS)
