Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is preparing for a new party in Jammu and Kashmir, is now in alert mode. He has questioned the rhetoric of Congress leaders in gestures and said that if I fired a ‘ballistic missile’, they would have disappeared. Azad had resigned from the Congress in August. He was associated with the party for more than 5 decades.
On Thursday, Azad held a rally at Bhaderwah in Jammu and Kashmir. According to news agency ANI, the former Congress leader said, “They (Congress) fired missiles at me, I have responded only with 303 rifles and they were destroyed.” What if I had used a ballistic missile? They would have disappeared.

However, during this time he refused to comment on former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Azad said, “Since I have been a member of the party for 52 years and consider Rajiv Gandhi as my brother and Indira Gandhi as my mother, I do not want to utter a word against him.”
Earlier, Azad, the former Chief Minister of the state, had announced the formation of a new party in the first public meeting after leaving the Congress. However, the situation on this is not yet clear. He said, ‘I have not decided the name of my party yet. The people of Jammu and Kashmir will decide the name and flag of the party. I will give the name Hindustani to my party, which everyone can understand. Azad was the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir from 2005 to 2008.
Questions were raised on Rahul Gandhi
On 26 August, Azad wrote a five-page resignation letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi. In the letter, he raised questions about the leadership of the party and especially Rahul Gandhi.
