Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said Sunday that he told Congress president Sonia Gandhi 10 days ago that his party will fight the assembly elections on its own.

"I explained the reasons but also told her I wouldn't be making a public announcement because I didn't want it to look opportunistic," he said.

Abdullah's tweets followed an announcement in Jammu by the Congress that it planned to contest this year's assembly elections on its own, ending a long alliance with the National Conference.
