Srinagar, Dec 28: Decision on Chief Ministerial candidate is yet to decide, said National Conference (NC) chief Farooq Abdullah. The consideration would be made by the party if an alliance is worked out between the NC and the Congress, he added.

"It is too early to comment on who the chief ministerial candidate would be. I have not so far been in contact with the Congress for working an alliance with them," Abdullah told reporters after his arrival here from New Delhi.

"Once we work out an alliance with the Congress, the choice of the chief minister would have to be discussed by the two parties," he said. Asked whether his son and party president Omar Abdullah could be the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Abdullah said candidly, "Why not? Omar is a young man ready to serve the people".

Farooq Abdullah also denied reports of his having any differences with Omar Abdullah.
