Congress win a priority, will campaign wherever called: Ghulam Nabi Azad
New Delhi, Mar 05: Amid Congress strife, senior politician Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Friday a victory for the grand old party in the upcoming assembly elections was a priority and that he would campaign wherever he would be invited for the upcoming five-state assemby elections.
"We will campaign where ever the party sends us for campaigning or candidates invite us to campaign for them in the upcoming assembly elections in five states," he said during an interaction with reporters.
"Ensuring the victory of the Congress in the upcoming assembly elections is our top priority. Everything else will be secondary. I and my colleagues will campaign in all upcoming state polls," Azad said, adding that "we will try our best that the Congress wins in these elections".
In a public show of dissent, the leaders, including Azad, Anand Sharma and Kapil Sibal gathered on one stage in Jammu on Saturday, saying the party is weakening and they have come together to strengthen it.
Asked whether the members of the ''G-23'' will campaign even if the party does not ask them, Azad said, the party always sends main campaigners for some candidates.
He said he has seen the party functioning for many years and has always gone to campaign wherever needed.
Members of the Congress will get requests from candidates for campaigning once the scrutiny of nomination papers is compete, Azad said.
The ''G-23'' group has triggered several rows through its comments ever since it wrote to Congress president Sonia Gandhi demanding organisational overhaul and elections for every post in the party.
