Days after castigating Congress leader and minister Peerzada Muhammad Sayeed, ruling National Conference’s (NC) senior leader Mustafa Kamal on Friday pledged to strengthen the hands of chief minister Omar Abdullah and coalition government in the state.

“All should strive for peace and harmonious relations so that developmental works bear fruit fast. We also need to strengthen the hands of Omar Abdullah and the present coalition government, which is striving to give a better deal to people of the state,” said Kamal in his public address made at Wanihama on outskirts of Srinagar.

Inspecting recently completed Rs 10-lakh Wanihama link road, Kamal said, “With this link, Nagabal to Shalimar and Hazratbal will have an alternate road bypassing the busy Nagabal to Habak road and will greatly ease traffic congestion on this important route.”

Kamal had taken pot shots recently at coalition partner minister Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed’s, who was facing allegation of misusing public office to pass his son in Class 10 examination.

“The Congress minster undermined the chief minster’s chair by moving resignation before Sonia Gandhi. Peerzada was not resigning from his parent party but from the cabinet, which was headed by Omar Abdullah,” he had said. Kamal is brother of NC president Farooq Abdullah and uncle of the chief minister.

The Congress-NC was on a collision course but seems to have mend difference with both the parties stopping issuing statements against each other.
