SRINAGAR: Senior National Conference leader and former minister Prem Sagar Aziz on Tuesday quit the party and extended support to former party colleague Devender Singh Rana, who joined the BJP recently.
Aziz, who was the NC’s Bani Assembly constituency in-charge, said he was resigning from the primary membership of the party, along with his supporters. “I was in the Congress for 45 years and joined the National Conference only because of Rana. As I know that he is working for the cause of Jammu, I support his cause unequivocally.”
“Now that Rana has dissociated himself from the National Conference for the sake of Jammu, I cannot continue in the party and extend my support to Rana,” Aziz said in a statement.
