Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Congress president
Saifuddin Soz today admitted there was no coordination between
ruling partners National Conference and Congress at the ground
level in the state, but stressed the need for both the parties
to move together.

"Yes, there is no ground-level coordination between
the two parties in Jammu and Kashmir," Soz, also Chairman of
coalition government`s coordination committee, told a group of
reporters here.

"The coalition politics is very difficult," he said
but emphasised the need for both the parties to move together.

"The way is laid with thorns, boulders and snakes, but
there is no other way except to tread on the same path," Soz
said quoting a Sanskrit verse.

On suggestion of senior Congress leader and former
Deputy Chief Minister Mangat Ram Sharma for rotational Chief
Ministership in Jammu and Kashmir, he said "it is for the
party High Command to take a decision in this regard."

He said Sharma at a party convention in Samba had
made a suggestion for rotational Chief Ministership after
three years.

"I cannot reject it as Sharma is a senior party
leader and also cannot support it. The party High Command is
aware of the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and it is for them
to take a decision," he said.
