SRINAGAR: Congress leader and minster for health and medical education Taj Mohi-u-Din on Saturday clarified that the reports published in a section of press indicating his joining People Democratic Party (PDP) are baseless.
Talking to KNS, Taj said that he will sue the newspapers that have carried the report. These reports are part of a political conspiracy against me. I was in Congress, am in Congress and will always remain in Congress. The report mentioning that I want to join PDP is most irresponsible mischievous in nature, the Congress minister said.
He said that there was no meeting in his secretariat office in which anything related to PDP was mentioned as has been reported by a section of press. I want proof of any such meeting from the newspaper that has published this frivolous report with bothering for the professional ethics. I have decided to take a strong legal action against the newspaper which has attributed wrong information to me, he added.
Pertinently, a section of press in Jammu had published that Taj is likely to join PDP ahead of Legislative Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.
