Infighting rattles Congress in Udhampur
DCC seeks Azad, Dr Karan Singh as party candidate in place of Vikramaditya

Early Times Report

Jammu, Mar 17: Instead of forging alliance with other parties for upcoming Loksabha elections, internal fighting within Congress party has refused to die down with a district Committee seeking Gulam Nabi Azad or Dr. Karan Singh as party candidate rather than Vikramaditya.
The District Congress Committee Udhampur headed by Krishan Chander Bhagat had submitted a memorandum to President All India Congress Committee Rahul Gandhi, seeking party mandate in favour of Gulam Nabi Azad or Dr. Karan Singh for Kathua-Udhampur-Doda constituency rather than Vikramaditya.
As per the memorandum passed by DCC Udhampur following a meeting, which was attended by 14 block presidents, the committee had submitted that GN Azad could come out victorious from the parliamentary seat. "As the second option the block presidents were of the view that Dr. Karan Singh should be considered as he had won four times", the memorandum reads.
Sources within Congress party informed that the issue erupted over a scheduled meeting in Udhampur on March 12, headed by Vikramaditya. "Congress party had nominated a working President Ashwani Khajuria while as DCC is headed by Krishan Chander Bhagat. As there is no announcement from the Party regarding the candidate so the DCC Udhampur was of the opinion that the meeting must be postponed till the announcement of the candidate. But the group headed by Ashwani Khajuria had decided to go against DCC Udhampur", sources said, adding that some DCC members took up the matter with Vikramaditya but failed to get any satisfactory reply.
Later the DCC submitted a memorandum before AICC president seeking mandate for GN Azad or Dr. Karan Singh rather than Vikramaditya.
After the meeting, the working style of Working President Ashwani Khajuria became matter of debate in DCC. "On 17th of March, the DCC revoked the recommendation of Working President Ashwani Khajuria", it reads.
The revocation resolution reads, "Instead of assisting, Ashwani Khajuria started to create indiscipline, confusion and by-passing the organization altogether. He created nuisance and misbehaved with senior leaders in the meeting in which Vikramaditya was also present. We request your goodself to initiate an inquiry and take appropriate action against self styled leaders to save party from further damage", the resolution concluded with signatures of all 14 block presidents.
