Prominent Congress leaders from Marh, Jammu North join DAP

JAMMU: Dozens of Congress’s prominent leaders from Marh and Jammu North on Tuesday joined the Democratic Azad Party. The leaders include Lala Devi Das, Saudhgar Singh Saini, Ashvani Sharma, Ashok Bhagat, Swarna Bhagat, Bishan Bhagat, Somnath Dogra and many others.
They joined the Party in presence of DAP Chief Ghulam Nabi Azad and pledged to march with the party’s developmental agenda in Jammu and Kashmir. “We believe the DAP is the only alternative political party in Jammu and Kashmir that can take it out of present situation.
We are quite satisfied with Ghulam Nabi Azad for his developmental agenda since he proved it as erst- while Jammu Kashmir state’s Chief Minister. So
we decided to join it,” the leaders said.
Meanwhile, speaking on the occasion, Azad assured them that he will take everyone on board and ensure Jammu Kashmir is one among the top devel- oped UT’s of country. “The people are gradually under- standing and endorsing our agenda of development for Jammu and Kashmir. The joining of new faces from other parties amply reflect their desire for change.
DAP is an alternative force and we believe in change and development,” he said.
Azad said that Jammu’s potential is yet to be explored in its full form.
Whenever elections happen and if we are elect- ed to power I will ensure it emerges as one among the top developed cities.
Among others present on the occasion were General Secretary DAP R.S.Chib, Ashok Sharma, Maheshwar Singh and others.
