“The talks are going on with Congress, but we (NC) will contest from all the seats in Kashmir,” Nasir Aslam Wani, the party’s Provincial President said. He added that the decision has been made by the party and there will be no discussion over it.

However, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President, Vikar Rasool when contacted, said that there is no decision with regard to the seat-sharing yet. “NC might have made public its stand and claim on three seats in Kashmir division, but the fact is that any decision with regard to the alliance and seat sharing will be made public on March 7 only,” he said.

The decision is still pending and a final outcome will be out on March 7,” he said.
