Jammu: Day after launching political outfit, ‘Democratic Azad Party’, former chief minister and veteran politician reached Srinagar to continue its interactions with people.
“Landed in Srinagar today. Very happy to see the public reception and love from all walks of life. I am here back among my people to ensure that their dreams are fulfilled and Kashmir ushers in an era of peace and development. No to violence and corruption. Yes to progress and growth!,” Azad wrote on social media page after reaching Kashmir.
Moreover, several delegations interacted with Azad at his Kashmir’s residence.
Saima Jan, DDC from BK Pora, Budgam along with her supporters joined Azad’s DAP.
“I joined along with my 60 associates, the leader Ghulam Nabi Azad who has a vision of running the system, neatly and corruption free. A man driven by the Development Politics and Politics of delivery,” she said,
“A new beginning for a greater cause, for reviving the Secular, Democratic & Progressive Nation. I look forward to work along with other Colleagues of Democratic Azad Party, on a mission for empowering the people of J&K Economically and Socially. We aspire clean & Honest Politics,” she said.
Meanwhile, terming former Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad’s Democratic Azad Party (DAP) as an associate party of the Bharatiya Janta Party, Congress on Tuesday claimed that there was an internal alliance between Peoples Democratic Party and Bharatiya Janta Party in 2014.
Talking to reporters, Pradesh Congress committee president Vikar Rasool said that Ghulam Nabi Azad’s party is fully associated with BJP.
“Mufti Muhammad Sayeed could have stopped BJP but after elections were held, you saw they had an internal alliance,” Vikar said.
Vikar said Ghulam Nabi Azad is a shrewd politician and would not tell the public about his links with the BJP. “These people won’t tell you that they are affiliated with BJP because they know that they would then get a big zero in elections,” he said.
