Stage is set for what would be the former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad’s new political chapter after he broke away from his five-decade-long association with the grand old party. It is D day for him and for his supporters in Jammu where Azad is likely to launch his own political party.
Preparations are in full swing for Azad’s first public rally as a non-Congressi. The red carpet would be rolled out for Azad who is to arrive at Jammu from Delhi this morning and he would be welcomed with a procession that would accompany him to the rally venue at Sainik Colony, according to former minister G M Saroori, reports PTI.
Saroori is among those prominent faces that quit the Congress after Azad’s rather public exit from the party following a bombshell 5-page letter slamming Rahul Gandhi for ‘demolishing’ the party.
Reports suggest that it is at this grand event that the 73-year-old Azad is expected to make the much awaited announcement of the formation of his own political party.
