Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) President G A Mir Thursday said that the appointment of former minister Raman Bhalla as the new working president of the J&K unit would strengthen the party in Jammu.

Addressing a function organised to welcome the newly-appointed JKPCC working president Raman Bhalla at the JKPCC headquarters in Jammu, Mir hinted at more such decisions shortly.

He said consultations were going on at various levels to further strengthen the organisation and gear up activities, especially in the Jammu region.

Earlier Bhalla was accorded a rousing reception by the Congress leaders and workers led by Mir.

Mir welcomed the decision of the party high command to appoint Bhalla as the working president of JKPCC.

“The decision has been taken as Bhalla is a hard-working leader of the party who stood by the party through thick and thin. He is not a fair-weather leader,” he said.

On the occasion, Bhalla thanked the party leaders and workers for rousing reception and expressed gratitude to Congress high command and the JKPCC president for allowing him to further serve the party and the people.

He said that he would leave no stone unturned to come up to the expectations of the Congress leadership and the workers and would expose the “betrayal of the ruling BJP to people in Jammu region”.
