Jammu & Kashmir Congress has issued a showcause notice to Ghulam Nabi Azad's loyalists and former legislators G N Monga and Vikar Rasool Wani for boycotting Sankalp Shivir and holding a private program at a Srinagar hotel. Further, Congress has asked for an explanation within two weeks for this 'indiscipline act'.

In a statement, the Congress Committee said, "GN Monga and Rassol Wani have indulged in gross indiscipline under the grab of private lunch Party in some hotel in Srinagar which you have named as Sankalp Shivir amounting to gross indiscipline on your part". 

It is to be noted that Nav Sankalp Shivir was held from May 31 to June 2 which was supervised by AICC Incharge J&K Affairs Rajani Patil.  

Stating that the duo was invited to the programme, the party mentioned that Azad loyalists had a private lunch despite knowing the significance of Sankalp Shivir. 

"You are hereby asked to explain your position within two weeks from the issuance of this notice as to why disciplinary action should not be taken against you", the notice read.
