Cong concerned over JKPCC dissensions: Chavan
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Jammu, Jan 22: The AICC General Secretary Prithvi Raj Chavan today expressed the party’s concern over alleged dissensions within its state unit saying that Congress leaders holding their own functions and not attending the party’s official programmes to mark important occasions have been asked not to do so.
Replying to a question by newsmen here on separate functions being held by some Congress leaders and Ministers on major occasions in the state, Chavan said he had talked to some of the leaders and they had been asked not to miss the official functions of the party.
Asked if the high command was proposing to take any disciplinary action against such leaders and Ministers, he said the disciplinary action committee had already given its report which was under examination.
Chavan, who had come to Vijaypur, about 30-kms from here, to attend a function where senior PDP leader and former minister Sardar Manjeet Singh joined the Congress along with a large number of his supporters, however did not specify any disciplinary action against those who had been holding parallel functions in JKPCC.
Welcoming Singh into the party fold, Chavan described him as a popular and grassroots leader who had the capacity to further strengthen the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir.
