Jammu-based National Conference leaders Devender Rana and SS Slathia resigned from the party on Sunday. However, the reason behind them leaving the party is not known yet. Devender Singh Rana has been a three-time J&K Legislator.
"I believe there is a need for strengthening of Jammu declaration. It'll become a voice for Jammu & Kashmir & strengthen UT & country. For this, I have changed my political path," Devender Singh Rana said.
"Dr Farooq Abdullah has received & accepted the resignations of Salathia & Rana. No further action or comment is deemed necessary," a National Conference spokesman tweeted.
Rana, who was NC’s provincial president of the Jammu region, had dropped hints over the past few days that he will quit the party.
