Jammu, Jan 05 (Agencies): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said he would not vacate his post for his alliance partner Congress, insisting that he was "Chief Minister for six years".

He was addressing a press conference to mark the completion of his two years in office.

Omar Abdullah intervened when a reporter asked his father and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah about the fissures in the ruling National Conference-Congress coalition.

The chief minister insisted that the differences were an "imagination of the media". He added: "There are no differences whatsoever."

"When I talked to Congress president Sonia Gandhi in December 2008 before the formation of the coalition government in the state, there was no point of rotational Chief ministership.

"I was told that I would be chief minister for the whole term of the assembly. Hence, I am Chief Minister for six years. And the Congress high command is happy with my performance," Omar Abdullah said.

The issue of rotational Chief ministership has been raised by the state's most senior Congress leader and former deputy chief minister Mangat Ram Sharma.

Sharma raised the issue at a rally in Jammu in December 2010 when he said that the coalition can work smoothly "only if the chief ministership is handed over to Congress after Omar completes three years in office" in January 2012.

This is the first time Omar Abdullah has responded to the Congress leader's demand.

The Chief Minister added that not a single cabinet meeting witnessed any differences between the two parties and that 25 meetings had been held in the past two years.

‘Can't act against Cong Minister’

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said Wednesday he cannot take action against Congress Minister Sham Lal Sharma for calling for a trifurcation of the state.

"I cannot take any action against the minister. As his party (Congress) has said nothing to him, how can I? In the given situation, I can only say that his remarks were his individual views," Omar told reporters here.

Sharma was seated besides Omar Abdullah at the press meet.

Sharma had sparked a row when he alleged gross discrimination against Jammu region and declared that "let Kashmir be given azadi (independence), Ladakh be made a union territory and Jammu a separate state".

Sharma, the health minister in the National Conference-Congress coalition, made the remark at a public rally in Kathua district last month.

He was reportedly served a show cause notice by the Congress.

Don’t hoist flag in Srinagar: BJP told

Meanwhile, asking BJP not to go ahead with its plan to hoist the tricolour in Srinagar on Republic Day, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that party would be responsible for "any repercussions" in the Valley.

He was replying to a question on the 'Kashmir Chalo' rally of the youth wing of the BJP and its plan to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on January 26.

"If their aim is to set Kashmir afire, please tell them to stop. If there are repercussions, I will hold them personally responsible", Omar said.

"They should not hold me responsible if there is a fallout of that in Kashmir. They will have to come and sort it out. They shall not hold me responsible", Omar who was flanked by his father and Union Minister Farooq Abdullah, said.

The flag will be hoisted at an official function in Srinagar on January 26, he said, adding, "What is the need for an individual to hoist the flag.

"The flag shall be hoisted at numerous places. Every district headquarter will have a flag hoisting ceremony. Every security camp, Army establishment and police structure will have flag hoisting", he said.

"What is the need for the BJP to hoist a flag at Lal Chowk. Are they more nationalistic than the rest of us. If a minister hoists a flag in Srinagar is that somewhat not relevant. Will their flag hoisting be more relevant", the Chief Minister asked.
