Rahul reaches out to Cong workers

After successive electoral defeats, Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday decided to reach out to the ordinary workers across the country to prepare an action plan for the Congress’s revival.

Rahul delivered the ‘back to the basics’ message at the meeting of party general secretaries and chiefs of Congress’ frontal organisations, convened a day after the party received more drubbings in Jharkhand and Jammu & Kashmir Assembly elections. 

The leaders have been asked to complete the exercise in two months, which could culminate in a meeting of All India Congress Committee sometime during February.

AICC General Secretary Shakeel Ahmed described Wednesday’s meeting as an extension of Gandhi’s consultation with 400 Congress leaders. Gandhi, in line to take up the reigns of the party in future, has been meeting the leaders in groups to listen to their take on its dismal performance in the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections and the way forward.

“Rahulji asked General Secretaries to meet the workers at block and district levels to get their feedback on how to take the party forward in terms of strength, ideology and other aspects,” Ahmed said.

The Congress Vice President also asked the leaders to get feedback from the state and district units on local issues to send the message that the party cares about its workers.  “The thrust of the meeting was to devise ways to attract more members towards the party,” a senior leader said.
