Although suspense over resignation of Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah over alleged non-cooperation of Congress members in the creation of new administrative units in the state continues, his party, the National Conference (NC), and ally Congress leaders say there is no crisis-like situation and government will last its full term.

“There will be no surprises tomorrow (Saturday). The central leadership of the Congress had shot down the objections raised by its party members in the J&K cabinet sub committee (CSC) on creation of new administrative units in the state.

The Congress ministers of the CSC have been told to submit the report in CSC, which they have done today (Friday),” senior NC leader Mustafa Kamal said.

Omar had met Congress leaders in Delhi earlier this week and discussed the creation of new administrative units.

He had warned the Congress leaders if the CSC-headed by Deputy Chief Minister and Congress leader Tara Chand did not present report before the Cabinet on Saturday, he would resign.

After the meeting, sources said, the Congress leaders had asked party leaders in the CSC to submit the report in the Cabinet on scheduled date and raise their points in the meeting.

Kamal said the Cabinet meeting to be chaired by Omar on Saturday will discuss the CSC report on creation of new administration units.

He said the crisis in the coalition government has been averted and now there is no crisis-like situation.

Asked whether CM will resign on Saturday, he said, “Why should he resign as Congress high command has already shot down party dissent in Jammu and Kashmir. The Cabinet will discuss the report on administrative units, which will be submitted by the CSC headed by Deputy CM”.

Sources have said the CSC-headed by Deputy Chief Minister has recommended setting up of 2,000-3,000 new administrative units.

Kamal said the CSC was formed by the Chief Minister to look into the loopholes of Ganai report on creation of new administrative units.
