“Congress is having an electoral alliance with the party. I want to ask the Congress president to clarify to the nation whether or not he agrees with his ally’s demand,” he added.
The National Conference (NC) vice-president had on Monday said that his party would not allow any attacks on Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and would seek restoration of terms of accession of the state, including the provision for ‘Sadr-e-Riyasat’ (president) and prime minister posts.
“I want to make it clear that the BJP, no matter whether it is in power or in the opposition, would not allow their desire of having two PMs in the country being fulfilled,” Shah said further.
