I am returning to Congress, DAP is dividing secular vote: Tara Chand

SRINAGAR: Former deputy chief minister Tara Chand on Thursday said that he is returning to Congress as“Ghulam Nabi Azad-led Democratic Azad Party is only dividing the secular vote.”

Tara Chand, who was deputy CM during NC- Congress regime, said that he is likely to rejoin Congress.“I will rejoin the party. I am Congressman by birth, “he said, adding that he is holding consultation with his workers.

He said they were expelled from the group at the time when they were thinking of rejoining the party. “Most of the people would leave the party. Where is the party? It is almost non-existent and only a few people are calling shots in it,” he said,

He said that Ghulam Nabi Azad-led DAP is only dividing the secular vote. Tara Chand and two leaders were expelled by the DAP on Thursday for their involvement in anti-party activities. This is a serious setback to Azad-led DAP which has failed to rope in leaders from parties other than Congress. Former MLA Surankote Choudhary Muhammad Akram has already distanced himself from the Azad-led DAP—(Agencies)
