Congress leaders Sunday strongly refuted the ‘frivolous, concocted and baseless’ allegations levelled against Congress party, MP and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad.
A joint statement issued by Senior Congress leaders including JKPCC vice president Janak Raj Gupta, Former Dy CM Tara Chand, MLA Inderwal, Ghulam Mohammad Saroori, MLA Devsar Mohd Amin Bhat, Secretary JKPCC and Spokesperson Salman Nizami, MLA Shangus Gulzar Ahmed Wani and MLA Surankote Chowdhary Akram.
The Congress leaders rebutted a news report by a section of media that Azad loyalists are meeting on January 22 for campaign to seek ouster of JKPCC president. They said that no such meeting is going to take place for the ouster of JKPCC president or for PCC reshuffle, its only party high command which has to decide and is authorize to take such decision.
Leaders said, “how unverified reports purportedly attributed to Azad and of Congress party are being manufactured. Congress leaders said it seems that a particular section of media has taken a contract from some vested interests to churn out a story against Congress leaders and party on a daily basis.”
They said that the least this section of media can do, is to go for an unbiased self introspection.
“The allegations levelled by this section of media are not only baseless but a figment of imagination. This section of media has blatantly resorted to baseless and slanderous accusations against noted public representatives and on Congress party,” they said.
“Let us make it clear to this particular media that Congress represents aspirations of people and neither the vested interest groups,” Congress leaders said and added that some parties have the agenda of flaring up the communal tension and misleading the people on the name of religion, region, caste and creed which disintegrate the society but whenever Congress came into power they have assure better development in the state and is committed for peace and development and this is the only agenda of this party.
“People in Jammu and Kashmir know who is who and what is what. The baseless accusations against Azad and Congress won’t fetch the so called political group or section of media any kind of public support or popularization instead these malicious propaganda are bound to expose this media further among the people,” Congress leaders added.
