Jammu: Ghulam Nabi Azad, who resigned from the Congress party, announced the launch of his own party yesterday. He said that the people of Jammu and Kashmir will decide the name and flag for his party.
Senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who has severed his 50-year association with the Congress party, called the first meeting of his supporters in Jammu’s Sainik Colony yesterday. Ghulam Nabi Azad was given a rousing welcome by his supporters on his return from Delhi. Banners welcoming Ghulam Nabi Azad were hoisted from the Jammu airport to the venue of the meeting. The meeting venue had seating arrangements for more than 20,000 people. More than 3,000 people expressed their desire to join the new party launched by Ghulam Nabi Azad. Since the resignation of Ghulam Nabi Azad from the Congress party, many parties from Jammu and Kashmir like a former deputy chief minister, 8 former ministers, a former MP, 9 MLAs, many Panchayat Raj members, municipal councilors and grassroots activists have joined the Ghulam Nabi Azad camp.
Regarding this, former Kashmir Minister G.M. Saruri said, “People are well aware that Ghulam Nabi Azad served as the Chief Minister of Kashmir from 2005 to 2008. People of Kashmir are eagerly waiting for him to become the next Chief Minister. “In the next assembly elections, the party led by Ghulam Nabi Azad will be the real party in Jammu and Kashmir politics,” he said.
Ghulam Nabi Azad spoke in this meeting:
I haven’t decided on a name for my party yet. The name and flag of the party will be decided by the people of Jammu and Kashmir. I will give the party an Indian name so that everyone can understand it. My party will focus on getting statehood back to Kashmir, land ownership and employment for the people of the state.
The Congress Party computer was not created by Twitter. Created in the blood of volunteers. That party is now ruined. The deliberative system in the party was destroyed by Rahul Gandhi. This is what he said.
