District President Pulwama, Umer Jaan quits Congress party

SRINAGAR — District Congress Committee president, Umer Jaan from south Kashmir’s Pulwama district has resigned from post and basic membership of the party.

In his resignation letter, Umer has stated that the Congress has lost relevance in Jammu and Kashmir.

“It’s been quite a few years especially after the abrogation of the special status that the Indian National Congress has lost relevance in the Union Territory because of its obscure stand on Jammu and Kashmir and has failed to put forward its vision and policies regarding the UT,” reads the letter.

It reads that it seemed more interested in raising the issues of central leadership and ignoring the problems faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

“I must thank every member of the party who stood by my side in my journey with Indian National Congress and I wish every member of the party best in future and hope they can change the policies for the betterment of people of India and in particular the people of J&K,” it reads. — (KNO)
