Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Oct 10: Former Union Minister and Pradesh Congress Committee president Prof Saif-ud-Din Soz met Governor N N Vohra at Raj Bhawan in Srinagar today and discussed the issue of consensus in the Congress Party on adoption of provisions of 73rd Amendment of the Constitution of India.
During meeting, the PCC chief apprised the Governor that this consensus to remain firm on rejection of nomination system in the Panchayati Raj at all levels, was reached through discussions at various levels in the Party functionaries including legislators in Kashmir and Jammu province, respectively.
Apart from keeping Congress Party’s interests in view, it was unanimously decided that Congress must adhere to its resolve that since 73rd Amendment of Constitution of India alone can empower Panchayat Institutions at the grass root level, its provisions must be adopted. Congress party also decided that it must remain firm on rejection of the system of nomination in the Panchayati Raj system, Prof Soz maintained.
The party sources said that PCC chief is leaving for Delhi to apprise the party high command of the consensus within the J&K Pradesh Congress at all levels on the question of adoption of provisions of 73rd amendment of Indian constitution.
