Srinagar, Mar 15: Putting the speculations aside, the National Conference (NC) and Congress on Wednesday decided to contest the parliament by-polls together through seat sharing arrangements in the Kashmir Valley.
Addressing a joint presser here at local hotel, the opposition mainstream parties said that the NC president, Dr Farooq Abdullah will contest the parliament by-polls from Srinagar seat while the JKPCC chief, G A Mir will contest from Anantnag seat.
Omar said that alliance between the two parties is not compulsion but it is a strategy to defeat the counterparts in the by-polls. (KNS)
