SRINAGAR: Senior Congress party leader Salman Nizami Thursday claimed that several PDP and Independent legislators came to meet Congress stalwart Ghulam Nabi Azad after BJP pulled out from alliance with People’s Democratic Party. Nazami told news agency CNS that he himself facilitated their meeting with Ghulam Nabi Azad. “One of the legislators who also served as a Minister in PDP-BJP coalition government was ready to join the Congress party without giving any second thought,” he said.
Nizami added that during the meeting Ghulam Nabi Azad categorically told these legislators that Congress party will never forge an alliance with PDP today or in future. Nizami who declined to divulge the names of these PDP legislators claimed that once state assembly will be dissolved, they will join Congress party.
