Ghulam Nabi Azad said in Srinagar, it is not in my hands to ask the Supreme Court to start the hearing and give its verdict in our favour.

Senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, who has resigned from the Congress, has once again given a statement regarding Article 370. "It cannot be made an issue as it is not in our hands," he said. In fact Azad had made a statement a few days ago that I or the Congress party or three regional parties cannot give back Article 370 to you, neither can Mamata Banerjee, or the DMK or (NCP chief) Sharad Pawar.

Not in my hands to convert 77 seats to 350: Azad

Ghulam Nabi Azad said in Srinagar, it is not in my hands to convert 77 seats to 350, it is not in my hands to ask the Supreme Court to start the hearing and give its verdict in our favour. I have never made a promise that is not in my hands. He further said, since coming to Jammu and Kashmir, the meeting is going on. People of all religions are getting support. I am not getting more from other parties than people. I do not want to break any party. There are 30-40% people who do not belong to any party, I have come to seek their help.


Azad slams parties promising to restore 370

Former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad slammed the parties promising the restoration of Article 370 amid preparations to launch his own political party and said he would not mislead people. In his first rally in the Kashmir Valley after quitting the Congress last month, he said only a government with a two-thirds majority in Parliament can ensure restoration of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Azad does not fool people for electoral gains

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister said in a public meeting at Dak Bungalow-Baramulla in North Kashmir, some people are saying that I do not talk about Article 370. I want to tell them that Azad does not fool people for electoral gains. He said, I swear before Allah that I will not mislead you. I will not raise slogans or issues over which I have no control. Azad said only a party with a two-thirds majority in Parliament can restore the erstwhile state's special status, which was revoked by the Center in August 2019.

Congress party getting weak in every state: Azad

Azad said, with the defeat of the Congress party in every state, its strength in the Rajya Sabha is decreasing. I don't think Congress can get more than 350 seats in Lok Sabha elections. From where can I get this, said Azad? Why should I mislead people? Azad, who ended his five-decade-old ties with the Congress last month, said he would announce the formation of his new political party with an independent ideology within 10 days.
