SRINAGAR — President of the J&K National Conference (JKNC) and Member of Parliament, Dr Farooq Abdullah, emphasized the importance of a stable Pakistan for the entire Indian subcontinent during a press conference in Srinagar on Thursday.

In remarks reported by a local news agency, Dr Abdullah highlighted the significance of Pakistan’s stability for India’s overall well-being. “Stable Pakistan is good for the whole of India and unstable Pakistan is not good for us,” he asserted, addressing a query from a reporter.

Additionally, Dr Abdullah urged the Central government to exercise wisdom in addressing the ongoing farmers’ demand for a guaranteed Minimum Support Price (MSP) to prevent further loss of lives.

Addressing electoral matters, Dr Abdullah ruled out the possibility of pre-poll alliances for the National Conference ahead of Parliamentary elections. “NC won’t go for pre-poll alliance ahead of Parliamentary elections,” he affirmed during the interaction with media persons in Srinagar.

Expressing optimism, Dr Abdullah hoped that both Parliamentary and Assembly elections might be conducted simultaneously.

Regarding summons from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), he maintained NC’s firm stance, asserting that the party would not succumb to tactics. “If they think NC will finish with the arrest of Dr Farooq Abdullah, then they are wrong. I am going to appear before ED soon,” he stated.
