Congress turns aggressive
1/20/2020 12:02:34 AM


War of words between the senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and the former PDP leader Altaf Bukhari has snowballed into a major faceoff. Azad had alleged that the Third Front led by Bukhari is threatening the Congress leaders to join them otherwise they will be booked under false cases. Bukhari while reacting to the allegations leveled by Azad dared the senior Congress leader to prove his allegations against him. The former PDP leader said that if Azad cannot prove the charges then he should quit the Parliament. Terming the politics being played by Azad as “cheap,” Bukhari claimed that if it’s proved that he has pressurized any of the Congress leaders, he will quit the politics.
The revival of political process in Kashmir seems to have created unrest within the Congress camp. After landing in Jammu, Azad launched a scathing attack on the Centre, for sending Group of Union Ministers to the newly carved out Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. He mocked at them by stating that they are coming to J&K to “celebrate the destruction” of the erstwhile State. On the very next day he launched a tirade against Bukhari, who during the past few days has become politically active. He along with the rebel PDP leaders called on the Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu. He and his group also met the group of 15 envoys, who visited J&K recently. His activities seem to have made the Congress insecure as most of its leaders in the Valley have become insignificant due to their inability to connect with the people on the ground.
The Congress party is left with only a few options. Either it has to put its act together and make a comeback or it has to turn into a mute spectator. For making a comeback Azad, who has been a former chief minister of the erstwhile State of J&K, will have to regroup his people. And it cannot be done by lashing out at the opponents. If the Congress party decides to just wait and watch then there is every possibility about new people emerging on the scene and taking control of the things. Allegations leveled by Azad on Bukhari are too brazen. If he is unable to prove these he could end up losing his face. But if there is some substance in the charges he has leveled against the former PDP minister then it means something big is cooking up.
