If you can sack Peerzada, Saroori why not drug scam culprits
SRINAGAR: Urging party High Command to punish the culprits involved in spurious drug scam, Congress workers from Valley apprised UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi about the prevailing situation in Kashmir and alleged that High Command has deprived Kashmir based Congress leaders from all the important portfolios as a result the supporters of the party in Kashmir were suffering from inferiority complex.
These Congress workers also met Union Health Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, State Congress Chief Prof Saif-u-Din Soz, Mohan Prakash and Jhanardhan Divedi.
One of the workers present in the delegation told CNS that they raised issue of the spurious drug scam and urged upon the party top brass to take stern action against the culprits. We didnt mention the name of any minister. Even Soniaji told us that the no Congress leader from Kashmir pin pointed those issues which we highlighted, one of the members, said.
He said that though spurious drug scam was discussed thoroughly, however, we also complained that Congress party in Kashmir was not taken on board on the issue of execution of Mohammad Afzal Guru. All the workers in one voice said that the party has received a setback in Valley after Gurus execution, he said.
If you can sack Peerzada Mohammad Syed and G.M.Saroori for their faults then why you are reluctant to sack those involved in spurious drug scam. We requested party top brass to take action against the guilty, he said.
These workers included District President Srinagar, Abdul Gani Khan, Mohammad Amin Khutlari (Kupwara), Mohammad Abdhullah Nadaf (State General Secretary), Mushtaq Ahmed Khandey (Shopian), Fayaz Ahmed Dar (Pulwama) Chodhri Salam Din (Kupwara) G.M.Rafique (Bandipora) and Mohammad Maqbool Bhat from Pattan.
