National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said on Sunday that he wanted the Congress (Congress) to be united and strong to fight the "divisive forces" in the country. The former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that terrorists will continue to target people as long as the root cause of terrorism is not hurt. A day before Abdullah's statement, senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad and other disgruntled leaders of 'Group 23' gathered at an event and gave a message to the party high command.
In a ceremony organized by Kashmiri Pandits, Abdullah said, "I want to see the Congress strong. I want the Congress to unite and fight the divisive forces in the country. People are waiting for the Congress to solve the country's problems. It is a part of this nation and a party of 150 years old. "
'What do I have to do with them?'
On the question of congress leaders gathering in Jammu on Saturday, Abdullah said that he (Azad) is a part of the Congress and he is all those who came. He is not out of the party, he is a senior Congress leader. Rahul Gandhi had reportedly given a statement that democracy in the country is dead. Asked about this, Abdullah said, "Why should I react to what he (Gandhi) or other leaders (Azad etc.) are doing?" What do I have to do with them? My party is the National Conference. "
'Congress has to decide'
He said that he (Congress) has to decide on this. The problem is in their house and they have to correct it. In response to a question on the murder of Akash Mehra, the son of the owner of a dhaba, Abdullah said that it is sad.
