Confusion, chaos prevails

The crisis in Congress Party in J&K seems to have deepened further as the party high command hasn’t appointed anyone till date as the new Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief.
An official handout issued by the party on Monday mentioned G A Mir as the JKPCC chief leading to speculations that the party has retained him as the J&K chief despite him submitting his resignation.
It was for the first time after submitting his resignation on July 5, Mir issued a press release and mentioned his name as JKPCC president. After Mir had tendered his resignation former minister Raman Bhalla had been appointed as the officiating JKPCC president.
There were reports that the Congress high command wanted the former J&K chief minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, to take over the party’s command in the Union Territory.
But it appears that Azad refused to take the responsibility citing health reasons. After Azad’s refusal the proposal to appoint any of his close aides as JKPCC chief was moved but the loyalists of the former chief ministers couldn’t develop consensus.
The JKPCC has been without a president for nearly a month and it appears that the party leaders in J&K are finding it hard to develop consensus on one particular candidate.
The Congress high command is hesitating to announce Mir’s replacement due to intense infighting among senior leaders.
It’s an established fact that the Congress Party is struggling to maintain its presence in J&K after it faced worst-ever debacles in two successive Lok Sabha elections of 2014 and 2019, and 2014 assembly polls. Since then Congress in J&K has been faction ridden.
During the past few years many leaders have changed their turf in J&K. Factionalism, senior leaders deserting the party have brought the “Grand Old Party” on crossroads in Jammu and Kashmir.
If the leaders keep on locking horns on who will be the next JKPCC chief then there is every possibility about the party high command retaining G A Mir.
It appears that the group led by Azad too is divided and everyone wants to be the president.
If the Congress Party fails to set its house in order in Jammu and Kashmir it may completely lose its existence in the Union Territory. The Congress leaders need to put their differences aside and strive for a common cause as the assembly elections in J&K are on the cards.
