SRINAGAR: The National Conference is open to a pre-poll alliance if the Congress agrees to its seat sharing arrangement for upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

"Yes, we recieved an offer from Congress but we have been very clear on taking forward any alliance plans only if our candidates are  to contest all the Lok Sabha seats in Kashmir, " former chief minister Omar Abdullah told reporters at Dak Banglow Anantnag on the sidelines of a party function  on Sunday.

Omar said by not holding simultaneous polls in Jammu and Kashmir,  people were beong denied a chance to elect their representatives.

On former IAS officer Shah Faisal launching  his party,  Omar said , "It remains to be seen if Shah Faesal and his party will have anything new to offer," he said .

He said as Chief minister he  never felt the need to ban Jamaat-e-Islami.

"Omar said it was pointless to  expect any progress on resolution of Kashmir issue till elections were held both at the Centre and State levels.
