Congress CLP meet remains indecisive
Jammu, Nov 11: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee remained indecisive over the probable candidates to be fielded by the party for the upcoming elections for four seats of Legislative Council to be held on December 3.
The Congress Legislative Party (CLP), which met here on Sunday under the chairmanship of Pradesh Congress Committee president, Prof Saiffudin Soz, received feedback from the party leaders but no decision was taken.
Sources said the meeting was informed that the names of the candidates would be decided by the Congress high command, while the seat sharing arrangements would be finalized in the Coalition Coordination Committee meeting to be held on Monday.
The meeting was specially held to discuss the strategy for the upcoming polls to the four seats of Legislative Council which are scheduled to be held on December 3 and the results would be declared on December 8.
“The CLP meeting was aimed at getting feedback from the party members regarding the number of candidates to be fielded for the four seats reserved for the Panchayat members, their names and how to contest the elections”, they said.
“Although both Congress and National Conference has already decided to contest the elections in coalition the seat sharing arrangements are to be finalized”, party sources said adding that the party leaders in the meeting were of the opinion that Congress should stake claim on one seat each from Kashmir and Jammu regions. However, some of the members were of the view that party should field its candidates in the Jammu region as it is strong bastion of the party, sources claimed.
They informed that it was an open meeting in which threadbare discussions were held, “All pros and cons were discussed but nothing has been finalized yet,” they maintained.
They said that the party members have suggested names of different candidates to the party president which would be finalized by the party high command.
“Whatever has to be finalized will be decided in Coordination Committee’s meeting on Monday”, a senior party leader said adding, that some other issues including, empowerment of Panchayats and implementation of 73rd amendment also came up for discussion.
