Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 10: A piquant situation emerged during an informal meeting of Congress leaders when a party corporator of Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) alleged that a senior leader “paid” Rs 500 each to each worker to attend a recently held function of Mahila Congress at party headquarters.
Furious over “corrupting” workers to attend party functions, the corporator warned that this new fashion of paying money to workers in lieu of attending party meetings would prove disastrous for the Congress party in the coming Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) elections.
Highly placed sources said that during the recently held meeting of the Mahila Congress, some workers from a ward of Jammu Municipal Corporation attended the same event without information of the local corporator.
“When the elected corporator inquiry it came to the notice that a senior leader paid Rs 500 to each of the workers in lieu of attending the function”, a source said and added this action of the senior leader annoyed the local corporator who vociferously took up this issue before a senior party leader and former minister.
“The corporator raised the issue in front of the leader who allegedly bribed workers and cautioned the former minister that this trend would set up a new tradition of paying workers”, a source said and added that the former minister, who is holding an important position in Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) assured to look into the matter.
Recently a meeting of the Mahila Congress was held which was addressed by senior leaders including JKPCC Vikar Rasool Wani, working president of JKPCC Raman Bhalla, and newly appointed president of J&K Mahila Congress Shamima Raina.
This was the first meeting of the Mahila Congress in Jammu after the appointment of Shamima Raina as president of the J&K Mahila Congress.
Many active Mahila Congress workers were conspicuously absent from the important meeting.
