Hours after appointment, Ghulam Nabi Azad resigns from key posts in J&K Congress

New Delhi, 17/8: In a major setback to the Congress, its senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad resigned from the post of chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Campaign Committee and the political affairs committee, hours after he was appointed by the party high command.



According to the party sources, Azad’s appointment was viewed as a demotion from his existing role as a member of the All India Political Affairs Committee of the AICC. While declining the offer to take over as chairman of the campaign committee and political affairs committee of J&K, Azad has reportedly cited health reasons.


Azad, who is part of Congress’s G-23 group of ‘dissenters’, was recently ignored by the party for nomination to the Upper House
