Ghulam Nabi Azad: Hundreds of leaders and workers who resigned from the Congress after Ghulam Nabi Azad held a meeting here on Sunday under the leadership of former Jammu and Kashmir minister GM Saroori. Azad (73), who resigned from the Congress on August 26, is scheduled to reach Jammu on September 4. He has announced the formation of a new party in Jammu and Kashmir. Saroori said, “More than 500 prominent Congress leaders and workers, including councillors, panchayat members and block-level leaders have resigned from the party in support of Azad. The meeting was called to send a message that we are all with Azad.” He said, “In the coming days, you will see leaders from all over the country coming with Azad’s party.
Assembly elections are likely to be held in Jammu and Kashmir on November 25 after the completion of the special revision of the electoral roll, so Azad’s focus is here. Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Jammu and Kashmir unit president Ravinder Raina said his party will win the next assembly elections on its own. “Azad’s resignation has exposed the Congress leadership. What he has to do then is his own decision. If they have decided to form their own party then no one can stop them”. We will win more than 50 seats and the next chief minister will be from the BJP.
