Ghulam Nabi Azad’s son Saddam takes the lead: Entering active politics

Published Date:

Saddam Nabi Azad, son of Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad, has entered active politics, a party official announced on Sunday.

At the party’s youth conference held on Sunday at the Nigeen Club, Saddam (41), together with his father and other top party officials, was spotted.

He was on the same stage as the party leaders, but he avoided speaking to the convention. In the Kashmir valley, it was his first time appearing in public.

The businessman and oldest of the two siblings is named Saddam. He went to school in England. His sister, Sofiya Nabi Azad, has a background in journalism.

According to party leaders, Saddam would be politically engaged and concentrate on Jammu and Kashmir.

Salman Nizami, the DPAP’s chief spokesperson, told PTI that “He will be in active politics immediately.”

When asked if Saddam would have any involvement in party matters, Nizami responded that the party would make a decision in due course.

Speaking during the event, Azad claimed that he had requested his kid to explore the entire valley as a commoner without any protection.

“I informed him that doing so would allow him to learn the actual thoughts and desires of the populace. Otherwise, individuals present us with a fictitious image, “added he.

The former union minister claimed that Saddam visited locations that he had not visited recently.

This is how you learn, he said.

Afterwards, Azad expressed his joy over his son’s debut into politics in a tweet and his hope that he would live up to the public’s expectations.

“attended a Srinagar youth interaction event. If elected, my top priorities will be to listen to our young and provide them with a variety of work options. Saddam Azad actively entering politics makes me happy. I’m hoping he meets everyone’s expectations!” Azad tweeted something.

After leaving the Congress, he launched the party in September of last year.

Saddam now joins the state’s extensive list of political successors. Among the notable scions who have entered politics in J-K are Omar Abdullah, son of former union minister and NC president Farooq Abdullah, Mehbooba Mufti, daughter of former union home minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Sajad Lone, son of former mainstream leader turned separatist leader Abdul Gani Lone, and Salman Anees Soz, son of former union minister Saifuddin Soz.
