Srinagar, May 18 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Monday said the National Conference (NC) would provide "unconditional support" to the UPA Government.

"The return of Ghulam Hassan Khan is something that we wanted, but it is not against the desires of the Congress Party. The high command of the Congress Party spoke to the President of the NC and expressed the desire that we do everything to bring him back home," Omar said

"Khan has unconditionally accepted the invitation of the NC and the Congress high command and come back to his home", he added.

Khan, a senior leader of the NC from Ladakh, had rebelled to fight the Lok Sabha election as an independent candidate against the Congress' P. Namgyal.

Khan defeated Namgyal by over 3,000 votes.

The NC had given the Ladakh constituency to the Congress under a seat sharing agreement between the two ruling partners in the state. Of the six Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, the two parties contested from three each.

While the NC won all the three seats, the Congress lost Ladakh but won two seats from Jammu region. (ANI)
