Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir's National Conference (NC)-Congress alliance headed by Omar Abdullah Wednesday resolved the deadlock over the creation of new administrative units in the state after NC patron and union minister Farooq Abdullah invoked the intervention of 10 Janpath.

Authoritative sources told IANS Omar Abdullah and his father finally managed the intervention of Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her son and party vice president Rahul Gandhi to shoot down the dissent within the state Congress unit over the creation of the new administrative units.

On the instructions of the Congress high command, four Kashmir ministers who are members of a cabinet sub-committee on the new administrative units remained closeted in a meeting that ended around 9.30 p.m. Tuesday at the residence of Ambika Soni, the Congress general secretary in-charge party's Kashmir affairs.

The meeting was also attended by Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kashmir Congress president Saif-ud-Din Soz.
