Mir resigns as J&K Congress Chief
STATE TIMES NEWS
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) president G A Mir has resigned from the post to pave the way for the restructuring of the party in the Union Territory.
“It is the tradition in the Congress party that before any reshuffle, the existing office-bearers put in their papers. I have done the same,” Mir told PTI on Wednesday.
He said he submitted his resignation to party president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday.
Mir, who was the JKPCC chief for over seven years, dismissed reports that infighting within the party unit was the reason for his resignation. “It is up to the Congress president to appoint the new PCC chief. There is no question of infighting (being the reason for resignation),” he said.
