Reunion ok, infighting needs to end
1/6/2023 11:03:49 PM

Seventeen leaders, who had resigned from the Congress Party, have rejoined the party. These leaders had earlier resigned to support former J&K chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who later formed Democratic Progressive Azad Party.
But within two months they have broken their association with Azad’s party and have gone back to their parent party. Leaders who rejoined the Congress apologized for breaking their long bond with the party and termed leaving the party as a mistake.
After losing power in Jammu and Kashmir in 2014, the Congress Party has been in doldrums due to infighting among the leaders and a few of them joining other parties.
After the former J&K chief minister and the veteran leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad announced his decision to leave the Congress last year and decided to float his own party, many of his loyalists followed him but within two months 17 have returned back.
The Congress leaders since 2014 have not been able to maintain consistency. They have failed to play a role of a strong opposition. Jammu region which was considered to be the bastion of the Congress Party has fallen apart and other parties have made inroads into Jammu.
Instead of the Congress leaders, the leaders of other parties have been raising the issues of Jammu people and during the past eight years they have carved a space for them.
Speculations are rife that the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir are likely to be held in April or September. It means that Congress Party can’t waste much time. The country’s “Grand Old party” has to put its house in order and ensure that its leaders stop fighting among themselves and make the party stronger.
If the infighting continues, then 17 leaders coming back to the Congress Party won’t make a much difference as the issues which have weakened the Congress in J&K will continue to haunt the party.
The forthcoming assembly elections in J&K would decide the fate of the Congress Party. If the party fails to make a comeback, it could prove to be a big jolt for the veteran leaders, who are claiming that their party will achieve the target that has been set by the party high command.
