Another Jolt To Congress As Peerzada Sayeed Quits Party

SRINAGAR: Former minister and ex-Congress Jammu and Kashmir President Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed on Sunday resigned from the party to join former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Sayeed will join former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is likely to announce his own party.

Azad, 73, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, ended his five-decade association with the Congress on Friday, terming the party “comprehensively destroyed” and lashing out at Rahul Gandhi for “demolishing” its entire consultative mechanism.

Since his resignation, a number of prominent leaders have joined Azad, including a former member of parliament, a deputy chief minister, 15 former legislators including seven former ministers, besides a large number of Panchayati Raj Institution (PRI) members, municipal corporators and grass-root level workers from across Jammu and Kashmir.
