Srinagar, March 25: Ridiculing the resignation ‘drama’ of Congress leader and former MLC Bashir Ahmad Magray, senior JKPCC vice President and MLA Sopore Haji Rashid has said that Magray was always a liability on Congress and his decision to quit was in fact a great ‘favour’ to the party by the so called Politician who has no political address and existence.
In a statement to CNS, Haji Rashid said that Magray had been like a parasite who was feeding himself on the Party resources as he was gifted a seat in Legislative Council even after securing just eight hundred votes in the 2014 elections.
Haji said that any sensible and conscious politician getting such a meager vote share would have quit politics rather than latching on to party for his own benefits. The congress leader said that now when finally the so called ‘conscience’ has prevailed upon him and he has decided to favour the party by quitting, the JKPCC should welcome it as it has been relieved from a political liability. Haji however, said that had Magray been a man with political conscience and values, he should have taken the decision way back when he was MLC but unfortunately he chose otherwise preferring the comfort and perks without being worth it. Haji said that by not doing it then, Magray proved how politically ‘opportunist’ he was. He said the time is over when political parties were willing to keep on feeding the persons who have no public acceptance and said the modern political age belongs to those who have public support and a vision to serve people rather than feeding themselves on party resources.
