Jammu: In a strong retort to the remarks of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and others, Democratic Azad Party Wednesday mocked that ever since they (central Congress leaders) entered Jammu & Kashmir for ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, the local leadership was begging for the crowds to the regional political parties.
Hitting out hard on Rahul Gandhi and his Bharat Jodo Yatra, the DAP leaders alleged that the Congress leader (Rahul) was misled by the people surrounding him about the facts and ground situation.
DAP general secretary R S Chib said that only two out of three leaders expelled by party chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad had joined Congress. “Third leader, who holds the constituency later re-joined DAP and the two remaining have no political constituency,” Chib said, adding that the love and respect for their party chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad brought hundreds of political leaders, workers from Congress after he formed the new party that rattled the Congress at the core and it was now working in damage control mode.
“Not only Congress, but many leaders from other parties also joined our party,” Chib said. “Rahul Gandhi is faking his love and sympathy with the people of Jammu and Kashmir since it is maintaining deliberate silence on issues like Article 370 abrogation, land, jobs and the recent terrorist strikes in Jammu and Kashmir. Even he is walking alongside the leaders who spoke against the Indian army. Taking along such anti national elements reflects the mind-set of the Congress party towards the nation,” he said.
