In a press statement issued here today Former District President Youth Congress Kathua Advocate Ajat Shatru Sharma hailed the decision of Congress Party to contest without any pre-poll alliance on all 87 assembly segments in J&K in forthcoming Assembly elections 2014. Ajat Shatru Sharma termed this decision a right step at right time.
In his statement he said that the party cadre since long were expressing their resentment to party high command regarding the step-motherly treatment given to Congress workers by the NC leaders. Many party workers were also not in favour of giving full six years term to NC leadership rather they want rotational Chief Minister for three year term to each other. But unfortunately party workers were feeling deceived by the coalition Govt. whereas the NC leadership always put hurdles in the path of implementing congress policies and programs.
The implementation of 73rd & 74rd Constitutional amendment took about four and half years despite being continuously pressured from Congress party and many more policies and programs as per state Congress manifesto are yet to be started by the Govt. After defeat in elections Congress workers started openly expressing their hidden resentment against the NC leadership in coalition Govt. He also thanked the party high command including Party Incharge J&K AmbikaSoni, Leader of Opposition Rajayasabha& former CM of J&K Sh. GhulamNabi Azad and J&K PCC Chief Sh. SaiffudinSoz for considering the demand of party cadre across the state in all the three regions of J&K.
Other party activists who welcomed the decision includes youth congress leaders Sanjeev Kumar, Jeevan Jyoti, Munish Kumar, Man Singh, Sahil Sharma booth President youth congress, and Varun Sharma.
