Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference, on Thursday, urged Governor Satya Pal Malik to allow a delegation of senior party leaders from Jammu to meet NC president Farooq Abdullah and vice-president Omar Abdullah, who are currently under detention in Srinagar.

"It also pledged to strive for strengthening the bonds of unity so that the pristine glory of Jammu and Kashmir is restored. The meeting placed on record the role played by the National Conference during most testing times in maintaining and sustaining democratic and secular ethos of the state and pledged to work to safeguard the interests of the people of the state so that they are not deprived of rights and privileges," he said.
