Jammu, March 28 (IANS) Union Water Resources Minister and senior Congress leader Saifuddin Soz Saturday expressed confidence that his party would return to power after the Lok Sabha elections.

“Our alliance with the National Conference is firm and we hope to win all the seats that the alliance candidates would contest in the state,” Soz said.
Jammu and Kashmir has six Lok Sabha seats and the two alliance partners are fighting for three seats each.
