Health Minister Taj Mohi-ud-Din is likely to join PDP ahead of LA elections. A Jammu based English daily reported Saturday.
The paper quoting sources close to Taj said that the news was disclosed by Taj Mohi-ud-Din himself to many senior leaders of the Congress including vice President, Ghulam Nabi Monga on Thursday in his secretariat office.
Taj Mohi-ud-Din had already made up his mind to inform state Congress about his decision. However on Thursday when talks about recent poll debacle were going on, Taj while turning towards Ghulam Nabi Monga said that he has decided to join PDP.
Monga reportedly asked Taj what was he waiting for. “I want to be in the Ministerial chair for some time more. I will join PDP along with my lobby,” he reportedly said. According to sources, a particular lobby follows Taj and the Congress is likely to shrink after Taj joins PDP.
Quoting Ghulam Nabi Monga the paper reported that the matter was serious and only JKPCC President Saif-ud-Din Soz can comment on this. “We do not know about the meeting in the secretariat. It was a kind of informal talk going on between us,” he said.
