Jammu and Kashmir: In support of veteran leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, 20 more leaders of District Congress Committee-Jammu North have tendered their resignation. 

Ghulam Nabi Azad has scheduled his maiden rally in Jammu after quitting the Congress on September 4, the same day Rahul Gandhi has slated a 'Mehngai par Halla Bol' event in the national capital. The ex-Congress leader is all set to launch his own party and its first unit would come up in Jammu and Kashmir within a fortnight, his close confidant G M Saroori had confirmed.

 

Ahead of Azad's Sunday rally in Jammu's Sainik farms, there has been a spate of resignations in the Jammu and Kashmir Congress. Sixty-four more leaders, including former deputy chief minister Tara Chand, tendered their resignation and joined the Ghulam Nabi Azad camp on Tuesday, leaving the unit of the national party in the Union Territory in tatters.

Saroori also claimed that hundreds of senior Congress leaders, Panchayati Raj Institution members and prominent workers have tendered their resignations after the former chief minister ended his over five-decade-long association with the national party.
