Asked if the NC would continue its alliance with the UPA in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, Abdullah said: "We will do what Omar suggests. We have not decided anything as yet.”

"I don't know if we will fight the election together. No decision has been taken yet," he added.

Congress-NC coalition on verge of split, Omar may resign

When asked to comment on the prospect of BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi to assume the top post, he said, "People will decide if Narendra Modi will win or lose. They will decide who will become the PM of India. If Modi is elected as PM, it will be the will of the people and the party will accept the verdict."

Earlier, the NC was part of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) but it withdrew support in 2002.

There were reports that the coalition between the Congress and the NC in Jammu and Kashmir may split amid indications that Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was considering resigning following sharp differences between the two parties.
