Will get public mandate again: Sonia Gandhi

Congress president Sonia Gandhi Sunday said there was "no reason" the party should not get public mandate again if it works in the right way.

"There is only 15 months left for the (2014) elections. I am confident, if we work in the right way and are united, there is no reason we should not get public mandate again," Sonia Gandhi said addressing the last day of Congress' 'Chintan Shivir' or introspective meet at the Rajasthan capital.

She said discipline and unity was needed, and also added that party members should publicise the good work done by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government.

"Several states are also going to polls. I think our biggest challenge is to be disciplined and united and present ourselves to people. The victory of the party is the victory of all of us," Sonia Gandhi said.

"We must tell the people of our country about our achievements. The government gives information from its side, but the party organisation should also publicise it," she added.

The 'Chintan Shivir' which began here Jan 18 and will conclude Sunday, has been focusing on chalking out a strategy for the 2014 general elections.
