Cong leader quits VP post
‘Won’t tolerate discrimination’
Srinagar, Aug 12: The senior Vice- President of Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee Muhammad Muzaffar Parray has resigned from the party post to protest what he termed “discrimination” of the Congress cadres by the coalition government.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Parray said he had quit the party post to register his protest against the “victimization” of their cadres by the state government.
“I have sent resignation letter to JKPCC Chief Prof Saifuddin Soz, but have-not received any answer from him about its acceptance till this time,” he said.
Parray said that he had resigned from the post of Vice-president to send a message across that Congress would not tolerate any kind of discrimination.
“Not only lower rung workers, but our leaders are also being humiliated by the administration and Government. Our workers are suffering right from 1947. Despite we being a part of Government the discrimination continues,” he said.
Parray, a close confidant of Soz said he would not leave the Congress and would fight against this “gross injustice” within the party.
“I will work to strengthen the party at grassroots as I have been doing in the past three decades,” he said, adding that he had raised the issue of discrimination with Central leadership also.
Pertinently, Parray hailing from north Kashmir has fought Assembly and Parliament elections on the Congress ticket for the past 30-years.
