SRINAGAR: Additional General Secretary National Conference (NC) Dr. Sheikh Mustafa Kamal today said that if Narendra Modi becomes the Prime Minster of India following next general elections, National Conference will develop the harmonious relationship with the latter.
Kamal said in an interview with local news gathering agency, KNS that the government that likely is going to emerge at Delhi will get support of National Conference in the coming time. Sheikh sahib used to say that in Delhi we have to sit with the government at the right side, if Modi becomes Prime Minister NC will support him in the interest of the people of the state.
Kamal further mentioned that the parliament members of NC can support Modi in Delhi and that he would get NCs support in terms of issues and development. We will not barter our stand neither will we compromise our principles but we will support him in the larger interests of the state. He further added that any government in Delhi will not take any decision in the parliament which would be against the nation.
Claiming the recent statement of Omar Abdullah wherein he advocated for the exploration of other ideas in dealing with Pakistan, was misunderstood by some sections, Kamal said Omar didnt mean war when he advocated for other options.
Other options doesnt mean tanks and war, it could be the international pressure that Omar wants Delhi to put on Pakistan so that the tensions on LOC could end. Kamal further stated that the number of people killed in the past 2 decades in Kashmir is more than that of the total number of lives lost during the 3 wars fought between India and Pakistan. How could we advocate war when we are the worst victims of it?
