Congress leader and former MLC Bashir Ahmad Magray Monday termed another former MLC Abdul Gani Vakil a mischief monger, saying he strongly takes exception to the remarks attributed to him by Vakil.
In a statement to KNS, Magray said, “Vakil has wrongly used my name in a statement while as he (Vakil) strongly opposes the position and stand of opposing the incumbent Congress chief for the state. Vakil held a meeting in Jammu and claimed that along with other Congress activists, I (Bashir Magray) was also part of it. I never attended any such meet. In fact I have strong faith in every decision taken by the Congress High Command. I have been the Congressman for more than 40 years. We are all proud that Mir is our president. He is an able leader who could deliver on ground.”
He took jibe at Vakil, saying, “Such elements have earned bad name for the party in Jammu and Kashmir. He added he strongly refutes the reports wherein his name has been included where being the part of the meeting that took place at Jammu as per Vakil’s statement.”
