NEW DELHI: Amid his ongoing rallies in Jammu and Kashmir, and the speculations they have spawned, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said he is not launching a new party but cannot predict the future- a comment that leaves suspense about his future plans.
In conversation with a television channel, Azad said, “no one can say what will happen next in politics. Like no one knows when he will die. In politics, no one can predict what will happen next, but I have no intention to form a party.”
Azad, however, lamented that disagreement and pointing out flaws in the running of the party these days are seen as rebellion by the leadership, though it was not so under Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. “Now if you say no, you are nobody,“ he said.
Azad is the leader of G-23, a group of congress dissidents who are demanding a change in congress leadership style and strategy.
