Azad praises Congress after two months of quitting it

Srinagar: Former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who formed a new party Democratic Azad Party after quitting the Congress two months ago, said on Saturday that the Congress has the capacity to challenge the Bharatiya Janata Party in electoral battles in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. The statement of Azad, who said that his party would contest the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir alone, surprised his supporters who also quit the Congress on August 26. He was associated with the party for more than four decades and highly critical of Rahul Gandhi.

Azad also said that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is confined to Punjab and Delhi. During his visit to Doda district of Jammu and Kashmir, Azad held a press conference where he praised the secularism in the Congress and that he was opposed to the party because of its frail system. Azad said that he was never opposed to the Congress for its policy on secularism.

He said that he wished that the Congress should win assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh and that the party takes the Hindu and Muslim farmers together. He was, however, critical of the AAP which he said failed Punjab where people would not vote for it again.

Only the Congress has the capacity to rule Punjab efficiently, Azad said. Nevertheless, Azad’s appreciation of the Congress put his supporters in a dilemma, because only two months ago he tore into the party for ignoring him and resigned from its primary membership.
