"I am a supporter of Omar, absolutely. We have a government here together," Rahul Gandhi said in reply to a question whether he would campaign for Abdullah ahead of the general elections.

The Congress leader was speaking on the sidelines of a function for a women's self-help initiative 'Umeed' in Badgam district.

Meanwhile, Omar Abdullah said the issue of alliance between the Congress and the regional National Conference (NC) in the state would be decided by the party at the right time.

"We (NC) are committed supporters of the UPA. I do not see any reason why that should change," Abdullah said.

On Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Gandhi said the cricketer is a "wonderful human being".

"I know him very well. He is a friend of mine. He is a great cricketer. More importantly, he is a wonderful human being. I wish him best of luck," the Congress leader said.
