SRINAGAR — Fairoz Khan, a former National President of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), who was alleged by an ex-woman member of the organisation of sexual harassment during MeToo campaign, has been appointed working President for Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Youth Congress.
Indian Youth Congress (IYC) President Srinivas B.V on April 11th in an official communique addressed to Khan, a copy of which lies with news agency Kashmir Dot Com said “I am pleased to appoint you as working President of J&K Pradesh Youth Congress with immediate effect.”
After founding himself in the mire of sexual allegations — the ‘victim’ had also alleged that her sister too was called by Khan to visit him in a room in some Bangaluru’s hotel and mentally tortured her for the same — Khan resigned from the position of NSUI’s President and at the same time denied all the charges levelled against him.
However, President IYC Srinivas B.V while relying on Khan added in the letter addressed to him that he is confident that Khan would work hard and devote his full time and energy to further strengthen the Congress Party under the dynamic leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. — (KDC)
