Farooq re-elected as president, Omar as working president of NC”

Opposition National Conference (NC) president Farooq Abdullah on Saturday chaired a meeting of the party's working committee and reiterated the resolve to protect Jammu and Kashmir's special status and ensure that all the three regions of the state were united against the "forces inimical to its peace, dignity and prosperity". A NC spokesperson told UNI that Dr Farooq was unanimously re-elected president during a delegate session of NC held at S K Cricket Stadium here on Sunday. When he became Chief Minister in 2009, Dr Abdullah replaced him as party president.

The flamboyant Farooq, who turned 80 on October 21, was welcomed by the party supporters with Islamic slogans.

"I did not want to continue as the president but so far doctors have not made any injection that would return youth to the old", he said cracking the amusing bone of the party supporters. However, Mr Omar said that the current situation confronting the state doesn't permit the NC to let go of a leader of a stature of Dr Farooq.

The National Conference in a statement issued after re-election of Farooq Abdullah as party head by thousands of delegates participated in the day-long session in Srinagar said, "We urge both India and Pakistan to initiate a sustained, sustainable and comprehensive dialogue process to resolve all outstanding issues". It was earlier speculated that Mr Omar will take over the position of the president of NC.

Speaking on the occasion, Omar felicitated his father for once again becoming the NC president.

The NC Working President said in reality Farooq wanted the party to relieve him of the post of the president but the party persuaded him to continue.
