Ghulam Nabi Azad responds to rumours of returning to Congresstext_fields
New Delhi: Former Congress leader and chief of the newly-formed Democratic Progressive Azad Party Ghulam Nabi Azad clarified that he is not planning to return to Congress. Lately, there were speculations that he might go back to Congress.
Azad was associated with Congress for 52 years and resigned earlier this year.
The former CM of Jammu and Kashmir said that the rumours of his return to the grand old party were planted by some vested leaders in the Congress and there was no truth in them. "I have never spoken to any Congress leader and neither has anyone called me. So I wonder why these kinds of stories are planted in the media."
He added that these are attempts by Congress leaders to create a sense of uncertainty within his party and demoralise them. "Come whatever may, we will emerge stronger."
He further said that he has not indulged in any mudslinging with anyone. "Whatever I had to say, I made it clear in my resignation letter. After this, I am on my own path to serve the people who have given me their trust."
Azad also confirmed that he is not planning to join the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra. "My hands are full with my own work." The Yatra will enter Jammu and Kashmir next month.
