Early Times Report
Jammu, Feb 17: Incumbent PCC president G A Mir is trying his best to stall the entry of former PDP leader Tariq Hamid Karra into Congress party amid reports that latter is all set to join Congress within next few days.
In order to prepare ground and trigger dissent against the entry of Karra, sources said that G A Mir convened a meeting of senior Congress leaders at his residence in Jammu on Friday. The meeting was attended by top Congress leaders, including PCC senior vice-president Sham Lal Sharma, Jugal Kishore, Madan Lal, former Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand and others.
Even as official agenda of the meeting was to deliberate upon the political scenario and forthcoming Panchayat elections in the State, sources said that main objective of calling all senior Congress leaders was to discuss the entry of Tariq Hamid Karra in the party.
According to the sources, Mir informed the participants that Karra was likely to join the Congress
'Insecure' Mir
JKPCC Chief G A Mir is secretly opposing the joining of Tariq Hamid Karra because of apprehensions that he would be sidelined by the high command after Karra's entry into party fold.However,Jammu based leaders are fully convinced that even if Karra is made JKPCC president, the high command would remain dependent on them for any decision related to this region.
arty on March 4 in the presence of AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who has given his consent for the same.
Since the party high command, has given its consent for Karra, sources said that Mir and his Valley based supporters are finding it difficult to oppose the joining and therefore the meeting was convened with a hope that Jammu based leaders may come openly against the development, particularly in view of Karra's soft stand on separatists.
However, sources said, no one among the Jammu leaders opposed the entry of Karra dashing Mir's hopes.
Sources explained that Mir is secretly opposing the joining because of apprehensions that he would be sidelined by the high command after the entry of Tariq Hamid Karra, who has a mass following in Kashmir Valley. However, on the other hand, Jammu based leaders are fully convinced that even if Karra is made PCC president, the high command would remain dependent on them for any decision related to this region.
