#BreakingNews Ghulam Nabi Azad Resigns from Congress
NEW DELHI: Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday resigned from all positions including primary membership of the party.
This came days after Azad resigned from the post of chairman of the campaign committee and from the political affairs committee of Jammu and Kashmir Congress hours after his appointment.
Azad’s resignation had come as a surprise to many in the party as it was considered that he was consulted while making key appointments and was active in the party forums. Azad also took part in the Congress ‘Gaurav Yatra’ and addressed a press conference when Sonia Gandhi was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in the National Herald newspaper case.
Azad is the head of the dissident G-23 and was ignored by the party for nomination to the Upper House.
More details awaited.
