Jammu, Dec 5: Although the Congress high command has announced the jumbo executive committee of the J&K Congress to accommodate all, some leaders are still annoyed for not getting the desirable positions in the party.
Highly placed sources said that during the meeting of the J&K PCC executive committee, which was held a couple of days back, many senior leaders were conspicuously absent.
Although it was clearly mentioned in the message that the scheduled meeting was very important and crucial, some senior functionaries preferred to stay away from it as a mark of protest against not getting the important positions.
Sources said that some leaders are not happy with the positions given to them in the new PCC as they were eying on important positions.
“Factionalism in the J&K Congress is likely to be intensified in the days to come as the worst-ever debacle of the party in the recently held assembly elections in three states of Hindi heartland has weakened the leadership”, sources said.
Important to mention here that on October 19, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary (organization) K C Venugopal announced new PCC for J&K.
The new PCC comprised 22 executive committee members, five senior vice presidents, 22 vice presidents, 51 general secretaries, and 62 secretaries.
Those who were appointed as executive committee members namely Dr. Karan Singh, Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz, Ghulam Ahmad Mir, Tariq Hameed Karra, Tara Chand, Peerzada Mohammad Sayeed, Dharampal Sharma, Neeraj Kundan, Ghulam Haider Sheikh, Krishan Chander Bhagat, Kanta Bhan, Mohammad Muzaffar Parray, Khemlata Wakhloo, Bashir Ahmed Magray, Girdhari Lal Chalotra, Ashok Bhan, Suman Bhata, Gubachan Kumari Raina, Amolak Singh, Pritam Singh, Zahida Khan and Mehraj Din Zagar.
Within minutes after his nomination to the executive committee of the J&K Congress, veteran politician and former Sadr-e-Rasayat of the erstwhile state of J&K submitted his resignation.
