Exponent Bureau:In a major development at national level ,congress high command has deferred the appointment of next PCC chief of jammu and Kashmir after speculation were rife that a junior leader Is being promoted to the coveted position.
Almost all senior leaders from both the factions of Azad and Mir group were up on toes after the news began making the rounds which irked almost all the leaders.The turbulence hit far and high as to how a junior leader who has allegedly a tainted record during his ministry is being given the top responsibility that too when elections are in the offings.
These irked leaders shot a letter to the Congress high command invoking mass resignation from the party if such a decision is thrust on the party leaders.
The bureau has accessed the resignation letter which clearly shows that workers and leaders aren’t happy with the development.The Congress high command has put on hold the appointment of JKPCC chief as of now.The letter reads as :
Respected Smt Sonia Gandhi Ji.
We the Ex MLAs, Ministers & leaders of the Congress party specially those who have won the last elections from Jammu and Kashmir in the year 2014 – want to bring to your kind notice that congress in J&K needs a strong leadership who is well experienced. We are told that Mr Vikar Rasool’s name is being considered. Mr Vikaar is way too junior and an inexperienced person who doesn’t enjoy support from other MLA’s, the party workers nor has connect with the masses. During the time where J&K needs a strong leadership and needs some one who can take along both factions of Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mr G.A.Mir this choice has offended both the factions. The high command didn’t consult any leader from the party. This unilateral decision will be the biggest blunder as the party will head towards the same fate as we faced in Punjab.
Hence we are writing to you and we are passing this resolution that we the members of Congress party will not work under Vikar Rasool. We will submit our Mass resignations if a unilateral decision is taken without taking the consent of other leaders and workers of the party. We respect the high command but this decision will further damage the party. We suggest to have a high powered committee comprising senior leaders of both divisions to run elections. Hoping that our plea is heard and a wise decision will be taken.
From Ghulam Nabi Azad group.
