Ghulam Nabi Azad, who was the CM of Jammu and Kashmir, said that today no one is ready to listen and because of this you have no importance today.
The G-23, a group of rebel Congress leaders, has been raising questions on the attitude of the party leadership on a daily basis, due to which upheaval has been coming to the fore. Once again senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad has said that the present generation of the party does not seem ready to accept the suggestions and views the advice given by senior leaders with a rebellious eye.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, part of the G-23 group advocating reforms in the Congress, said in an interview to News18, “When Rajiv Gandhi entered politics, Indira Gandhi called him and me and said that Azad did not know him too. But it will not mean disrespect or disobeying any order, it will be for the betterment of the party.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, who was the CM of Jammu and Kashmir, said that today no one is ready to listen and because of this you have no importance today. This statement of Azad is being described as an attack on Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.
He further said that when your advice is not heeded, it hurts him and other senior leaders. Ghulam Nabi Azad said, “We do not want any post in the party, but give advice for the betterment of the party. We want the party to be strong and perform well.”
“Today the ruling party is strong while the opposition is weak and only the ruling party benefits from the weakness of the opposition,” the senior Congress leader said. Asked about the Congress’s claim of not winning 300 seats in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Azad said the party had got a thumping majority only once, when it was headed by Indira Gandhi.
Ghulam Nabi Azad, who described himself as a firm Congress, dismissed the speculation of forming his new party. However, he said that no one knows when it will happen in politics.
