Lucknow: An Uttar Pradesh Congress leader on Friday said that Ghulam Nabi Azad should be made ‘Azad’ (free) from the party. Azad was one of the 23 signatories to a letter to party chief Sonia Gandhi, seeking an active and full-time party leadership among other organisational changes.
“In the CWC meeting, party chief Sonia Gandhi said that she was hurt by his letter but now the issue was over. Even after that, he talked to the media and posted on Facebook the next day,” Naseeb Pathan, who was party MLC between 2004 and 2016, told PTI.
“As he has broken the party’s discipline, he should be made ‘azad’ and expelled from the party,” he added.
On Thursday, Azad had asserted that Congress will continue to sit in the Opposition for the next 50 years if no election takes place in the party.
