Azad terms media reports of him rejoining Congress ‘baseless’

SRINAGAR — Ghulam Nabi Azad, veteran leader and founder of Democratic Azad Party (DAP) on Friday termed the media reports of him rejoining Congress party as baseless.

Quoting sources, news agency ANI had reported that Former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad is likely to return to the party as the talks have been initiated between the two.

Rebutting the story filed by ANI, Azad in a tweet said, “I am shocked to see the story filed by ANI correspondent about my rejoining in congress party. Unfortunately such stories are being planted by a section of leaders in the congress party right now and are doing this just to demoralise my leaders and supporters.”

He said, “I dont have any ill will against congress party and its leadership, however I request them to tell these habitual story planters to refrain from doing so.”

“Once again I would like to insist that this story is completely baseless!,” he said.

Azad in August this year resigned from Congress party and formed Democratic Azad Party. He was also former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir. — (KIMS)
