A very big statement from someone of the stature of Ghulam Nabi Azad who had been with the Congress party since the days of Indira Gandhi and had witnessed numerous ups and downs not just in Congress but all the political parties. On Friday today, Azad, left the party. The veteran Congress leader blamed Rahul Gandhi for the present devastating condition of Congress. He said the high command was not concerned to revive the party.
Azad had sent a letter to the interim Congress president, Sonia Gandhi stating he wants to quit. The veteran Congress leader has quit from all the posts of the party.
Well, the big question is why Azad slammed the Congress elections by calling it “farce and sham”? Being an old party loyalists its nothing wrong to expect a prized position within the party. Speculations are making rounds, will Azad join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
