Azad’s Candidature as CM Will Give 33 seats, Prof Soz’s Can Hardly Bag 22 Seats: Congress Minister

KL Report


Congress leader and minister R&B Abdul Majeed Wani on Tuesday said that if his party High Command fields Ghulam Nabi Azad as the chief minister candidate for Jammu and Kashmir next year, the party can win over 33 assembly seats and if PCC chief Prof Saif-u-Din Soz is nominated as the chief ministerial candidate, the party may hardly bag some 22 seats in the state.

Talking to a local news agency, KNS, Wani said that the union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has carved a niche in national politics and his nomination as the chief ministerial candidate in Jammu and Kashmir will give a fillip to the Congress party’s electoral achievements.

“Not only the party can win some 33 assembly seats but Azad will complete a full term as the chief minister of the state. On the other if Prof Soz is nominated as the chief ministerial candidate, the party may hardly win some 20 to 22 seats across the state,” Wani said.

Substantiating his argument, Wani said that Azad is the Congress leader who gave an entirely new direction to the development and clean politics in Jammu and Kashmir. “You can see, that Azad with his utmost commitment to welfare of people of the country has gained a reputation where he has the competence to influence even Congress High
Command’s major decision,” Wani told KNS.

He said that Congress party is trying hard to gain peoples trust in Kashmir valley where it has been tagged and maligned under a conspiracy. “Once it was said that if you vote for Congress, you are voting for an anti Islamic party. But now the people have realized that Congress is the party which believes in clean governance, development, transparency and accountability,” Wani stressed.
