JK People Will Decide My Party’s Name, Flag, Says Azad In Jammu Rally

SRINAGAR: Former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad held a public meeting at Sainik Colony in Jammu on Sunday for the first time since he quit the party.

Azad, a former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, resigned from the Congress on August 26 after having been associated with the party for nearly 50 years. In his resignation letter on August 26, Azad said that the Congress had lost the “will and ability to fight for what is right for the country”. He also accused MP Rahul Gandhi of destroying the party’s “entire consultative mechanism” after he became its vice president in 2013.

The Azad Factor

While addressing a rally in Jammu Azad said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will decide the name and the flag for the party.

“I will give a Hindustani name to my party that everyone can understand,” he said.

“I am always with the people of Jammu and Kashmir. Right now, I am not the chief minister or any minister. I am just a human. In the past one week, many people have resigned from the Congress and have supported me,” Azad said.
