"We are with UPA... people fall and rise, it does not mean we will leave our allies in difficult times," Abdullah told reporters here in the parliament complex.

His comments came in the wake of huge defeats the Congress suffered in the assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Delhi.

Asked about the Congress loss, he said, "There was price rise and then corruption was another issue. Congress lost because of these."
