Srinagar: After the resignation of Ghulam Nabi Azad, the Congress has suffered another major setback. Hours after Azad quit the party on Friday, Six Congress leaders in Jammu and Kashmir, who were also former MLAs, have also quit the party. According to reports, J&K Congress leaders Ghulam Mohammad Saroori, Haji Abdul Rashid, Mohammad Amin Bhatt, Gulzar Ahmed Wani, Chaudhary Akram Mohammad and Salman Nizami have resigned from the primary membership of the party in support of Ghulam Nabi Azad.
Apart from these, senior Congress leader and former minister RS Chib was also among those who resigned from the primary membership of the party. In his resignation letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, Azad accused the leadership of cheating in the name of internal elections and said the party has been completely destroyed.
Azad sent a five-page note to party interim president Sonia Gandhi, recalling his long association with the party and his close ties with Indira Gandhi.
Days after resigning from the organizational post of Jammu and Kashmir citing health reasons, Ghulam Nabi Azad wrote in his detailed resignation letter, the position of the Congress party has reached the point of ‘no return’.
Azad wrote, “The entire organizational election process is a farce and a sham. Nowhere in the country elections have been held at any level of the organization. The AICC troupe, which sits at 24 Akbar Road, has forced its chosen helpless warlords to sign the lists prepared.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, while targeting the party high command in gestures, said that the party had to surrender to the BJP at the national level and regional parties at the state level. All this happened because in the last eight years the leadership has tried to impose a non-serious person at the top of the party.
