Our final line should be for keeping it continued.” Stating that the NC has the opportunity to lead the government just because of the alliance, he said it should be utilised for gain in the elections as well.

Time demands us not to put conditions for the continuity of the alliance as its existence is necessary for strengthening the NC, according to him.
