Senior congress leader Advocate Manzoor Ahmad Ganie on Tuesday asked Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress committee to resign in the face of the colossal defeat in the recent Parliamentary elections.
“The Congress party in Jammu and Kashmir has been facing the crisis of leadership for the last many years. In fact ever since Prof Saif-ud-din Soz was made the J&K PCC Chief, Congress has been facing downward slide and the rot set-in during his tenure has further deepened during the last few years,” advocate Ganie said in a statement issued here to GNS.
“The recent defeat suffered by Congress in the state has only gone to illustrate as to how Congress has weakened, become directionless and uninspiring and all this because of the doings of the state leadership,” he said, adding, “G A Mir as PCC Chief of J&K State has appointed almost half a dozen of vice president and half a dozen of general secretaries and how except people like G M Saroori have proved unworthy for the party.”
He said the J&K PCC Chief G A Mir has not accepted the moral responsibility for the defeat and has not resigned and instead he seems to be coining explanation on his behalf and on behalf of his team.
“The explanations offered by him do not reflect the mishandling of the party and other related realities with regards to the party,” he said, adding, “One would have hoped that he will follow the footsteps of PCC Chiefs of states like UP, Bihar etc. and would have resigned but so far he has chosen not to resign,” he said.
