Mamata joins chorus against Chidambaram's ant-terror hub

Jammu: National Conference president and union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah Saturday said that Home Minister P.Chidambaram would soon clarify doubts of the chief ministers opposing the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC).

After nearly a four-hour long meeting of his party leaders, Abdullah said Chidambaram would be able to clear the air on the NCTC but did not elaborate his party's stand on the issue.

A constituent of the United Progressive Allliance, the National Conference is also a proponent of the autonomy of the states.

Seven chief ministers of non-Congress ruled states have come out stoutly against the proposed anti-terror hub, terming it an interference with the rights of the states and an onslaught on the federal structure of the country.

On the State Accountability Commission's notice to the Jammu and Kashmir government, including Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, on political appointments and conferring of ministerial status on two advisors and chairpersons of state corporations, Abdullah only said: "Law will take its own course."

He also hinted that a final decision is pending on Education Minister Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed of the Congress, divested of the school education portfolio for allegedly influencing officials to facilitate his son getting through the Class 10 examinations in 2009.

"At the moment, Congress president Sonia Gandhi is busy with the elections in UP (Uttar Pradesh), hence a decision as to how to deal with the issue of the concerned minister would be decided once she is free from electioneering," said Abdullah, stirring speculation that the minister's claim that his resignation had been rejected is open to question.
