Gear up for polls, Sonia tells party

Gargi Parsai

NEW DELHI: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday asked party office-bearers to prepare for elections. She set a deadline of August 31 for them to come up with specific programmes, strategies and a proposed list of candidates.

At a meeting with party leaders here, Ms. Gandhi took feedback from general secretaries in charge of the poll-going States on their preparedness for elections and asked them to involve State, district and block-level functionaries in setting in place organisation structures. She wanted simultaneous preparation for Lok Sabha elections as part of an aggressive strategy to re-energise the party in the run-up to the polls.

In answer to a question, chairman of the AICC media committee M. Veerappa Moily who attended the meeting said, “Yes, there was a sense of urgency to the meeting.”

The States scheduled to go to the polls in November-December include Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jammu and Kashmir, Mizoram and the National Capital Region of Delhi.

Ms. Gandhi told the meeting that she had received the A.K. Antony panel’s report on revitalising the party and sought the views of the leaders on it.
