Cong wants to tie-up with NC?

Union Home Minister Amit Shah today said the strong praises for Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and Congress veteran Ghulam Nabi Azad indicated that the Congress wants to tie-up with the National Conference (in the Assembly elections).
“Why did the Congress arrest Sheikh Abdullah in 1953?’’ Shah asked responding to praises of Sheikh Abdullah by Azad during his speech in the Rajya Sabha.
On forming Government in J&K with the PDP, he said “it was not our decision but a result of fractured mandate”. The BJP snapped ties with PDP when it realised that separatism was being encouraged, Shah said.
