Azad loyalist Vikar Rasool Wani named JKPCC President

Wani is a loyalist of former Chief Minister Azad, who has been assigned the duty to coordinate the party's campaign in the Union Territory.

Srinagar: The All India Congress Committee on Tuesday appointed Vikar Rasool Wani as the new President of J&K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC).

The post had fallen vacant after Ghulam Ahmad Mir stepped down as the JKPCC president. Wani is a loyalist of former Chief Minister Azad, who has been assigned the duty to coordinate the party’s campaign in the Union Territory.

With Wani’s appointment as the JKPCC President, the infighting between the Azad loyalists and those supporting Ghulam Ahmad Mir has apparently ended since Mir has said that he would abide by the decision of the party high command.
