Jammu Kashmir: Three more party leaders announced their resignation after senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad resigned from the Congress. Three more Congress leaders, including former Deputy Speaker of the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Ghulam Haider Malik, on Monday announced their resignation from the party in support of senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad. Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Azad (73) ended his five-decade-old ties with the Congress on Friday. He had said that the Congress was “overall broken” and its leadership was “cheating” in the name of internal elections.
These MLAs resigned
Malik, a former MLA from Kathua’s Bani assembly, and two former MLCs Subhash Gupta and Sham Lal Bhagat have sent their resignations to the party high command. Azad’s close aide and former minister GM Saroori said, “We have received letters (of support) from Malik, Gupta and Bhagat.” A source said former deputy chief minister Tara Chand, former ministers Abdul Majeed Wani, Manohar Lal Sharma and Gharu Ram and former MLA Balwan Singh also met Azad in Delhi and are likely to announce support for him after his resignation from the Congress on Tuesday.
“I was forced to leave the house by my family members”
It is noteworthy that Ghulam Nabi had recently resigned from the Congress. After resigning, Ghulam Nabi Azad has praised PM Modi and targeted the Congress. Ghulam Nabi said, ‘I have met those who are fulfilling their dreams from Narendra Modi and BJP, I have not met them. My family members forced me to leave the house. If the family does not want me to stay there, then the wise man is the one who leaves the house.
