No takers of Congress offer for mandate

Early Times Report
Jammu, Dec 4: There seems no takers of the Congress offer for mandate in the next Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir. Even after the announcement of AICC incharge Shakeel Ahmad and Sudhir Sharma in this regard, the State Congress leaders have shown no response to the offer and not even a single aspirant has so farcome forward to organize public rally.
While December 15 is the last date for seeking date to hold show of strength, sources said that no district president has been approached so far by any aspirant for organizing rallies. It may be recalled that AICC incharge Shakeel Ahmad and Sudhir Sharma, during their high level meetings with the State Congress leaders at Jammu and Srinagar, last week, had announced that party mandate would be given on the basis of show of strength by the aspirants who could approach the respective district presidents by December 15, 2018 for a date to hold the show.
However, depressed over sorry state of affairs in the Congress, which witnessed humiliating defeat in the recently held Local Body elections in Jammu and Kashmir, sources said that the State unit party leaders are in a fix over their future course of action.
While some Congress leaders are believed to be in touch with BJP, no one is interested to spend money worth lakhs of rupees on organizing public rally for show of strength, that too without a guarantee of return, sources added.
These Congress leaders feel that at the last moment, mandate will be decided by the top leadership in New Delhi and hence spending lakhs of rupees to impress the AICC incharge was not a wise idea. Hence, no Congress leader come forward for organizing show of strength.
