Senior Congress leader and Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Tuesday filed the nomination papers for the Udhampur-Doda Parliamentary seat in Jammu and Kashmir and said the Congress-led UPA would return to power at the Centre.

Azad was accompanied by a large delegation comprising J&K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, state Congress chief Saif-ud-Din Soz and several state ministers and party workers when he arrived to file his papers. Later, he launched a scathing attack on BJP  PM candidate Narendra Modi. “For the last six months from every corner only one name is being heard and no other name, which shows that the party belongs to one person only. It seems there is no other leader in the BJP, who has the capacity to lead from the front,” he said.

According to Azad, “The BJP created the impression of the ‘Modi-wave’ as it was along involved in poll campaign. Now, the other parties have also joined the election campaign, it is now slowly and steadily becoming visible that there is no BJP wave”.

He exuded confidence that Rahul Gandhi  would become the country’s next Prime Minister. The main contest will be between Azad and  BJP candidate Jitendra Singh.
