an “unprecedented situation” detrimental to the party's operations”, sources said.
Reports said that four letters have been sent to the AICC President and the Congress Working Committee.
“The first letter, dated May 7, criticized Rasool for ignoring office bearers and causing an unprecedented situation within the party”, sources said and another letter was written to Congress Working Committee member Tariq Karra.
Sources said that former MLA Sopore Haji Rashid has written the third letter on May 30.
Rashid, also the senior vice president of PCC, claimed he was sidelined by Vikar Rasool Wani during the election campaign.
The fourth letter sent on June 2 by eight general secretaries, three vice presidents, three secretaries, and a district president, further detailed Rasool's alleged misconduct.
Vikar Rasool was appointed Pradesh Congress Committee president in August 2022, succeeding former minister Ghulam Ahmad Mir. Rasool, a former legislator from Banihal, was once close to former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad but chose to lead PCC over joining Azad’s new party.
Sources said that the J&K Congress is divided between two groups. While one group owes its allegiance to Vikar Rasool Wani, another group comprises Ghulam Ahmed Mir, Tariq Hamid Karra, and other senior leaders.
