Reacting to the recent statement of Senior Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) leader Muzaffar Hussain Beigh, wherein he had stated that Congress in Jammu would be washed away due to Modi wave in the region, Congress Tuesday asked Beigh to ‘mind his own business’.
“He should concentrate on his own work and must desist from commenting over the issues related to Congress. Before issuing any statement about Congress, Beigh should set his own house in order,” Taj Mohi-ud-Din, Congress senior leader and minister for medical education told KNS.
He said: “Before commenting about our future perspective, Beigh sahib must strive for his own party and my only appeal to him is not to worry for us.”
Pertinently, senior PDP leader and former deputy chief minister, Muzaffar Beigh had said that Modi wave in Jammu may wash away congress in Jammu region in upcoming parliamentary and assembly polls.
Commenting over the pre-poll alliance ahead of the forthcoming parliamentary polls, Taj said, “The option (pre-poll alliance) is still open and the final decision could only be taken by the Congress high command. As far as the state Congress is concerned, we will submit our views after the complete assessment of the ground situation.”
He elaborated further: “Alliance is always forged between the two groups after the mutually agreed terms so that the unity could remain for long.”
While talking to KNS, Taj further mentioned that the state Congress is striving hard to identify the loopholes so that the forthcoming polls would not prove ‘disastrous’ for the Congress. “Sometimes people undermine rationality and turn to be emotional. We have to remain very cautious during this time.”
Taj while commenting over the triumph of Aam Admi Party in Delhi and the defeat of Congress in four major states in the recently held state elections, said that the state congress has to revise the strategy so that the party could make its representative character alive for the coming time. “From the ground workers to the leader of the top level, the state congress has to assess and analyze the ground situation.”
