Tomorrow, the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, will embark on a tour of various districts in Rajasthan beginning with the town of Sriganganagar. She is likely to tour Madhya Pradesh during the last week of this month followed by a visit to Chhattisgarh.
Though Ms. Gandhi's programme is part of the `Jan Sampark Abhiyan' aimed at establishing a direct rapport with the people, the party has decided to blend it with the ongoing poll campaign.
At a meeting here on Saturday, it was decided to constitute a panel of senior leaders to oversee the party's preparations for Chhattisgarh. Starting next week, the panel will tour all the districts of the State and give an assessment to the party high command.
The panel comprises the treasurer, Motilal Vora, CWC member, Vilasrao Deshmukh, in charge of party affairs of the State and senior leader and MP, Shyam Charan Shukla, along with the Chief Minister, Ajit Jogi, and the PCC chief, Ramanuj Yadav.
Meanwhile, the AICC general secretary, Ambika Soni, who is in-charge of party affairs of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, has exuded confidence that the party will retain power in both the States. She told The Hindu that the party `USP" in Rajasthan was the manner in which the Ashok Gehlot Government had attended to drought relief work despite `inadequate' assistance from the Centre.
