We’re not part of PAGD: Congress

Srinagar Nov 17: Congress on Tuesday refuted the “concocted and baseless” allegations levelled by Union Home Minister Amit Shat, says it was not part of PAGD.

In a statement issued to GNS, Congress said it strongly refuted the allegations leveled by Union Home Minister Amit Shah and said that it was neither  part of PAGD nor have participated in any of its meetings  or deliberations. “Congress has entered seat sharing at certain  places at local  district  level,” the party said.

“Congress strongly condemned the propaganda and allegations of Amit shah and urged  the later to refrain from doing such dirty politics,” reads the statement, adding, “BJP leaders are in habit of indulging in rumor mongering aiming to gain political mileage.”

“Eyeing DDC elections in J&K”,  the party said Union Home Minister seems “desperate enough  about the poll outcome which is certainly going to be unfavorable to BJP.” (GNS)
