Azad’s outburst sends Cong high command into tizzy
Sends SOS to JK leadership, asks it to remain cautious

Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 25: Veteran Congress leader and former J&K chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad demanding change in party structure has perturbed the Congress high command and it fears that Azad may make an attempt to split the party at this crucial juncture.
Sources told Early Times that the senior leadership here has been warned by the party high command to remain wary of the situation and keep a close eye on the ground. “The leadership has been asked to keep the flock together and not to allow any possible spark of rebellion in the Congress camp. The situation at present is precarious and merits extreme caution,” said, a senior Congress functionary.
Another leader on the condition of anonymity said that the recent statement of Azad is no less than a war cry against his own party. It has put the entire Congress leadership in a tight spot. “The party fears that Azad’s supporters within the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir could possibly create further wedges within. He has served as chief minister here and has a good support base. The threat cannot be ignored. It is looming large over the horizon,” said, a Congress leader.
Azad, in an interview to the news agency 2-days ago said that the Congress party’s ‘structure’ has collapsed and needs to be rebuilt by having elected leaders from the block to the Congress Working Committee (CWC) level and enforce accountability in the system. He added that a five-star culture had seeped into the party. “Candidates soon after getting the election ticket first check into a luxury hotel. Our party’s structure has collapsed. We need to rebuild it and then if any leader is elected in that structure, it will work. But to say that just by changing the leader we will win Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh etc. is wrong. That will happen once we change the system. Until we change our way of functioning at every level, things won’t change,” he said.
Meanwhile, soon after the interview was out, Congress high command sensed rebellion within the party following which it sent an SOS to the party leadership in Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier, speculations within the Congress party were rife that Azad is disgruntled due to his juniors calling the shots in J&K and his opinion not being taken seriously. “Rajni Patel (newly appointed J&K incharge of the Congress Party) during her last visit to the union territory had underlined the roadmap for strengthening the partyin J&K. The truth is that there is still confusion within the ranks and no one really knows what Azad is contemplating,” said, a middle rung leader.
“All we have been told by the leadership in New Delhi is to stay cautious and not to allow any of the cadres to go adrift. The party fears that rebellion is in offing,” the leader divulged.
