Rotational CM issue alive: Cong
Srinagar, Dec 20: Senior Congress leader and Supreme Court lawyer, Advocate Ashok Bhan, Tuesday claimed that the issue of change of Chief Minister in Jammu and Kashmir by rotation was still alive.
“Performance of the present government calls for a thorough review in view of its repeated failures on delivery front. I urge the party high command and in particular AICC chief Sonia Gandhi to give lead role in state’s governance to Congress nominee after three year term of the present dispensation ends in first week of January,” Bhan told local news gathering agency KNS.
Bhan said the Kashmiri Pandits in particular are alienated and living in forced exile in various parts of the country. Their exclusion from the mainstream of the J&K polity and from the power dispensation is fraught with the danger of communal and pernicious polarization. “Kashmiri Pandits can at no cost be excluded from the political administration in any ensuing cabinet expansion/reshuffle, as they are an inalienable part of plural ethos of Kashmir and symbol of secularism for the entire state,” he said. He said the Congress in the state has become a vibrant political force under the guidance of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
“The state Congress leadership is putting its all out efforts to ensure that a more astute, competent, honest and dynamic team of Congressmen is put in place in both the party and the Government in J&K for building a more vibrant party base in all the three regions of the state,” he added.
