Farooq rules out ties with NDA, says Vajpayee era was different

Ruling out any future alliance with NDA, National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah on Friday said his party was part of the dispensation when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was at the helm, but not now. ‘Even if the BJP-led NDA comes to power after the Lok Sabha polls, National Conference will not be a part of it,’ the Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy told reporters here. When asked that he was in the NDA government last time, he said that ‘the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was different...I can go with that person but not this,’ though he did not name whom he referred to as ‘this’ person.
