As­lam Sher Khan Floats Na­tional Congress Alp­sankhyak Dal in MP

The Day After - - STATES DIARY -

For­mer Union Min­is­ter As­lam Sher Khan last fort­night an­nounced the for­ma­tion of a party for mi­nori­ties that will try to unite the Mus­lims across the coun­try. He also claimed that soon there would be change of guard in the Pradesh Congress Com­mit­tee (PCC). While talk­ing to me­dia per­sons, As­lam said that named as Na­tional Congress Alp­sankhyak Dal, the party will work in co­or­di­na­tion with the Congress party but will be a sep­a­rate en­tity.

“Mus­lims feel that the Congress is not stand­ing for them on crit­i­cal is­sues on one hand while the Congress party too is los­ing cru­cial sup­port from the ma­jor­ity com­mu­nity as it was be­ing la­beled as a party of mi­nori­ties. So I felt the only way for­ward was to form the Na­tional Congress Alp­sankhyak Dal,” he said. He fur­ther said that Mus­lims have a size­able strength in at least 50 assem­bly seats in Mad­hya Pradesh.
