    UPA emerging stronger, says Farooq Abdullah - The Hindu
    CHENNAI, January 31, 2014

    National Conference leader and Union Minister Farooq Abdullah on Friday called on DMK president M. Karunanidhi at his CIT Colony residence. He termed his visit a courtesy call.

    DMK sources told The Hindu that while Dr. Abdullah confined his conversation to general political trends in the country, given the DMK’s firm stance against an alliance with the Congress, he did appeal to Mr. Karunanidhi not to allow circumstances that would give an upper hand to anti-minority forces.

    While DMK sources strongly felt that he could have come with a feeler from the Congress, the question of an alliance for the Lok Sabha polls did not figure during the discussion.

    Emerging after a 10-minute meeting with the DMK chief, Dr. Abdullah told mediapersons that he had met Mr. Karunanidhi only to “wish him well and to enquire about his health”, and declared that politics was not on the agenda.

    “I’m like his son…the son does not discuss politics with his father,” said Mr. Abdullah who is Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy in the UPA Cabinet.

    To a question whether the UPA was crumbling due to dissent among coalition partners, he retorted that while there had been some rumbles here and there, the problems were sorted out and the UPA was emerging stronger.

    This is a very treacherous trap for kangressi. All the allies are trying to bring down or completely root out kangress from India. I think, after 60 years of freedom we Indians have realized the truth about the kangress.

    Omar Abdullah refutes breakup talks in National Conference-Congress alliance | NDTV.com

    Press Trust of India | Updated: February 01, 2014 22:57 IST

    Refuting speculations of split in the alliance between Congress and National Conference (NC), Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said his party has no intention of leaving the alliance.

    Omar said that both the parties have agreed on the point that they will stay in the alliance till the very end.

    The Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister was responding to queries on media speculation on the ruling alliance split over the issue of creation of new administrative units in the state which the Congress had been stonewalling.

    Commenting on NC supremo Farooq Abdullah's meeting with DMK President M Karunanidhi, Omar said that the two dignitaries are friends and their meeting should not be seen as a political meeting.

    But he hinted that the meet may have been to strengthen ties between Congress and DMK.

    "Karunanidhi is an old friend of Farooq. They have worked with each other at times. There is no need to convert personal relations into political relations," he said.

    "There was a hue and cry over the issue of Farooq meeting Karunanidhi and it was being projected that NC is leaving UPA. We have no decision to leave the UPA. The friendship with whom we have, will continue, and political relations will continue as well," he said.

    "Maybe it is possible that Karunanidhi will again join UPA and make the alliance powerful," he said.

    Replying to a question on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's plans to field AAP candidates against Farooq Abdullah, he said, "If Arvind Kejriwal wants to field any candidate from Srinagar, let him do it. We will send him back after he forfeits its deposits in the elections."
