Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and Veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, on Wednesday, November 30, made some serious comments on the future of India’s oldest political party, Congress.
While addressing a public gathering in the valley, he said that he could not see Congress winning more than 300 seats in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
“I alone had been raising the issue of Article 370 in the Parliament during the past three years. Now the matter is before the Supreme Court. So, just to please people I should not speak on this issue which is not in our control. Only Supreme Court where matter is pending can restore Article 370 or the Centre,” he said.
Azad further added pointed out that since Prime Minister Narendra Modi led the NDA government had scrapped Article 370, it would not restore it. Hence the ultimate option was to wait for 2024 when the parliamentary elections would take place.
“We don’t know when we will have 300 MPs on our own to form the government. I can’t promise to do it. I can’t say that in 2024 we will get 300 MPs and we will restore it. May God get us 300 MPs. But at present, I don’t see it. I can’t make false promises hence I avoid talking about Article 370,” Azad opined.
