Ghulam Nabi Azad

Denying that he knew resignations of some state Congress leaders close to him, former chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said he would do what the people of Jammu and Kashmir want him to do for the betterment of the Union territory.

Spelling trouble for the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir, four former ministers and three ex-legislators, loyal to the group of Azad, resigned from party posts, saying they have not been provided with an opportunity to be heard on party affairs in the union territory, sources said on Wednesday.

“I will do what the people of Jammu and Kashmir want me to do for the betterment of this state,” Azad told reporters in reply to a question on whether he would contest as Congress chief ministerial candidate in the next assembly elections keeping in view the demand raised at a public rally in Kathua district.

The leaders, who shared the stage with Azad at the rally and resigned from their posts in the Congress, are saying only Azad is acceptable to them as the party’s face in Jammu and Kashmir and the chief ministerial candidate, not State Congress chief Gulam Ahmed Mir. “Mir is not acceptable to us. We want Azad sahib, and he should lead the party.

He has sacrificed a lot for the party and this area,” former minister Manohar Lal Sharma, who was among the leaders who resigned from party post, said at the Azad-led rally in Kathua. Azad said he came to know about the resignations of Congress leaders only through newspapers today.

“I am not a party to that (resignation by party leaders). I was not consulted. I, myself, read it in the newspapers,” he said. The veteran leader said that he did not talk to them as it was their point of view. “For me, everyone is equal. I am not with one team or another team.

I am not associated with one or another group,” he said. On the issue of grievances raised by his loyal in the state Congress, Azad said, “There have been grievances.” Asked about the show of strength of his faithful in Jammu Links and Kashmir, he said this was not a ‘shakti pradarshan’.

“I travel to internal areas of Jammu and Kashmir. It had not been possible for long because of the State’s bifurcation and then due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is to know about the people.” On the internal tussle in the Congress, Azad said it is even there in the ruling party, “we have more internal democracy (in the Congress).

Even their ministers speak (against the government). This (internal tussle) shouldn’t happen. Unfortunately, this is happening”.
