Demand rollback of decision
Stage protest with supporters
Haridwar, March 10
Two of the three Congress leaders expelled by the party staged a protest today and lashed at the disciplinary committee of the party. They also criticised state party in-charge Chaudhary Virendra Singh.
Former general secretary of the Uttarakhand Congress Committee and former ward councillor Naeem Qureshi, along with their supporters, accused the party of being biased towards them. They said they were facing bias because they were close to Haridwar parliamentarian Harish Rawat. They also held a media briefing.
Rao Affaq refuted the charges levelled against them by the committee while questioning the status of the committee members.
“Who are they (Dhirendra Pratap or Vijay Saraswat)? Nothing, but street leaders without any mass base. Virendra Singh looked drunk as he threw papers on our faces and held hands of glamorous party leader Shilpi Arora. They also misbehaved with us,” said Rao Affaq.
Naeem Qureshi warned that it would lose a major chunk of dedicated party workers from sub-urban Jwalapur, where a majority of minority people resides. He said it would harm the party’s prospect in the upcoming corporation and parliamentary elections.
“We will be holding Nyay Yatra in Haridwar and Dehradun to get justice. We will also try to meet Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi to apprise them of the injustice being meted out to us,” said Qureshi.
On his visit to the state recently, Rahul Gandhi asked the party workers to refrain from speaking in public platform about inner disputes. On this, Rao Affaq said they were just expressing their displeasure because they were dissatisfied with the expelling decision.
Meanwhile, state party spokesperson Hazi Naeem Qureshi also urged the party high command to rollback the decision taken by the disciplinary committee.
He also expressed his support to the two expelled leaders, saying that they would be part of Nyaya Yatra to seek justice for the veteran leaders.
