Srinagar, Sep 30: Imtiyaz Parrey, son of slain Ikhwan founder Kuka Parrey, on Friday resigned from basic membership of Congress.
Imtiyaz announced his resignation from the Congress party through a Facebook post.
“I am resigning from the basic membership of the Congress party due to some personal reasons. I appreciate my colleagues and leadership for reposing faith in me. I also appreciate the support and the love they have given me,” Imtiyaz wrote on his Facebook wall.
According to sources, Imtiyaz could possibly join the Ghulam Nabi Azad-led Democratic Azad Party.
Imtiyaz’s father Kuka Parrey was founder of Ikhwan, a counter-insurgency militia formed in 1994-95 to fight militancy.
Kuka Parrey also formed the Jammu & Kashmir Awami League before 1996 assembly polls. It won one seat each in 1996 and 2022 state polls. Imtiyaz fought the 2008 assembly election on the ticket of Awami League but later joined Congress. This party became dysfunctional after he joined Congress and was deregistered by the Election Commission of India in June 2022.kno
