Discarded Azad says 'Hindu brothers' don't invite me for campaigning
Fear of defeat

Early Times Report

JAMMU, Oct 18: Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and former Union Minister and J&K CM Ghulam Nabi Azad is a broken-hearted person today. He bemoans that times have changed and his Hindu brothers in the Congress do not call him for campaigning fearing defeat. There was a time when 95 per cement Hindu candidates and only 5 per cent Muslim candidates would call him for campaigning, but now not even 20 per cent Hindu candidates fielded by the Congress call him for campaigning as they believe that his campaigning in their constituencies could lead to their defeat.
The number of Hindu candidates inviting him to campaign for them in elections has reduced drastically in the last four years citing that that people were "afraid". "Since the days of the Youth Congress, I have been campaigning across the country from Andaman to Lakshadweep and 95 per cent of those who used to call me were Hindu brothers and leaders, and just 5 per cent were Muslim brothers.
But in the last four years, I have been observing that the figure of 95 has dropped to just 20 per cent. This means that there is something wrong…Aaj darta hai admi bulane se…iska voter pe kya asar hoga…(Today people are afraid to call me…wondering what effect would I have on the voter)," Ghulam Nabi Azad was quoted as saying at Lucknow.
He was speaking at an event in Lucknow where Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) alumni had gathered to observe the 201st birth anniversary of the University founder Sir Syed Ahmad Khan.
"Ek vishesh dal aur ek vishesh soch ke log, Kashmir aur AMU ko…Kashmir ke ladkon ko tang karne ke liye yeh sajishe banate rehte hain. (People of a particular party and of a particular thought are fomenting trouble for Kashmiri students and AMU through controversies)," Azad was further quoted as saying. He was obviously referring to the BJP.
It would be only desirable of Azad retrospect to find where he went wrong and why his "Hindu brothers" in the Congress stopped calling him to campaign in their constituencies.
