Srinagar, Oct 10 (PTI) The National Conference suffered a major setback in Jammu as two prominent leaders Devender Rana and Surjit Singh Slathia resigned from the party on Sunday.

"Dr Farooq Abdullah has received & accepted the resignations of Mr Salathia & Mr Rana. No further action or comment is deemed necessary," a National Conference spokesman tweeted.

Rana, who was NC’s provincial president of the Jammu region, had dropped hints over the past few days that he will quit the party.
