Azad running away from polls disappoints DPAP leaders
Seniors likely to say goodbye, rejoin Congress

Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 22: Decision of Ghulam Nabi Azad to withdraw himself from the electoral battle is likely to prove disastrous for his Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) as most of the senior leaders are likely to say goodbye to the party.
Majority of the party DPAP are unhappy with the decision of the Ghulam Nabi Azad to run away from the battlefield without any reason. Sources in the DPAP said that after thorough discussions it was decided that Ghulam Nabi Azad would contest elections on the Anantnag-Rajouri Lok Sabha seat and the chairman of the party had also given his consent.
“Leaving the battlefield without any solid reason has demoralized party leaders and workers who have been associated with Azad for long”, sources said and added that most of the DPAP mass-base leaders were of the opinion that their future was dark in the party so it was better to rejoin the Congress.
Sources said that many leaders of the DPAP have already opened channels of communication with Congress leaders to prepare the ground for their return after the completion of the Lok Sabha elections.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, who left the Congress party in 2022, has formed his own party called the “Democratic Progressive Azad Party” (DPAP). He recently decided not to run for a seat in the Lok Sabha, the Anantnag-Rajouri seat. Instead, he chose Mohammad Salim Parray to run for the DPAP in this important election.
This means Ghulam Nabi Azad won’t be running for any Lok Sabha seat in Jammu and Kashmir. Some people think he didn’t run because he didn’t want to lose to other strong leaders like Mehbooba Mufti from the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and Mian Altaf from the National Conference.
Even though Azad has won assembly elections in Bhaderwah, part of Doda district, he has never won a Lok Sabha election in Jammu and Kashmir. For example, in 2014, he ran for a seat in Udhampur-Doda but lost to Dr. Jitendra Singh from the BJP, who was new to politics then.
In just two years, Azad’s reputation as a strong politician has gone down a lot. Now, he’s not as well-known as he used to be and is only active in a few local areas. Some people say he’s now focused on splitting the Muslim vote.
