"National Conference (NC) has nothing to do with either Modi or Sangh (Parivar). We want to stay far and would not get into any agreements with them. Modi as PM will be dangerous and damaging for the Indian secular ethos," Abdullah told reporters while replying to a question.
The Union Minister, however, supported Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for the post of Prime Minister. "Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) has said that Rahul Gandhi is good choice for PM post. He has seen him (Rahul), even I have seen him and I think he is perfect. Rahul is young and a good choice and now he has to decide and bear the burden of this nation on his shoulders," Abdullah added.
Replying to a question on reports of a possible meeting between the Prime Minister and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Abdullah said talks between the two leaders would depend on ‘how the situation would be then’.
"Pressures are always going to be there. The talks between the two Prime Ministers will depend on how the situation would be when the Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) reaches America and how much relation between India and Pakistan would have improved by then, because political pressures will surely have an effect on this," he said.
Earlier, the Union Minister released four books on Kashmir including the English translation of the autobiography of his father and NC founder Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah – "The Blazing Chinar" at SKICC.
