Anything can happen in politics, says Azad

Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 5: Stating that anything can happen in politics, former J&K chief minister and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has neither confirmed nor denied whether he would float a new political party in the Union Territory.
Azad’s statement has added to the woes of Congress leadership in J&K because he (Azad) has the potential to spoil the party’s prospects in the coming assembly elections.
The incumbent Congress leadership headed by Ghulam Ahmed Mir is already worried after Azad received encouraging response during his tour in both the Jammu region and Kashmir Valley respectively.
“Formation of a new political party is not completely ruled out but we are waiting for some time to take a final decision”, a loyalist told the Early Times.
Wishing anonymity the Congress leader said that Ghulam Nabi Azad is not in a hurry to take any decision. “Azad is exploring all possibilities, he is in touch with leaders of other parties also”, he said.
Launching a veiled attack on incumbent Congress leadership headed by Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, Azad said unlike the time of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi, there is no place for criticism today.
“No one is challenging the leadership. Perhaps, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Ji had given me too much freedom to question when things were going wrong.
They would never mind criticism. They would not see it as offensive.
Today the leadership sees it as offensive,”, a news channel quoting Azad reported.
Azad recalled that Indira Gandhi had encouraged him when he refused to appoint two people she recommended as general secretaries in the Youth Congress.
“When Rajiv ji joined politics, Indira Gandhi called both of us and told Rajiv ji that Ghulam Nabi can even say no to me, but that No doesn't mean disobeying or disrespect, that's for the good of the party. Today, No one is ready to listen to that no. For saying no you become nobody today,” he said.
“No one can say what will happen next in politics like no one knows when he will die. In politics, no one can predict what will happen next, but I have no intention to form a party”, Azad replied to the query regarding the formation of a new political party.
