Azad, who recently broke his five-decade-long association with the Congress, while taking a jibe at the party said, "We built the Congress with our blood, not by computers, not by Twitter. People are trying to defame us but their reach is limited to computers and tweets. That is the reason Congress is nowhere to be seen on the ground."

Azad was accorded a grand reception at the airport in Jammu, where "around 20,000 supporters of Azab sahib are expected at the public meeting," former Congress leader GM Saroori had told reporters.

Saroori is one among over two dozen leaders from the region – including one former deputy chief minister, one former MP, and eight former ministers – who quit the Congress in support of Azad.
