Assembly Election 2014 :Weary Congress plans to revitalise itself through internal polls

Weary Congress plans to revitalise itself through internal polls

Befuddled after suffering massive losses in 2014 Lok Sabha elections and then in the recently held assembly elections of Haryana and Maharashtra, Congress has decided to overhaul its entire organisational structure right from the booth level to the top.


In the day-long meeting of the All India Congress Committee vice president Rahul Gandhi talked at length about reviving the party right from the grassroots-level by holding free and fair elections from January next year. Most of the party general secretaries and PCC chiefs were present at the session.


Party sources said Rahul asked the party general secretaries and Pradesh Congress Committee chiefs to concentrate on increasing party membership till December 31 this year but keep bogus and unethical people out from membership.


In last Congress elections, the membership stood at 3.5 crore. Rahul also asked them to try and finish all elections by July end and have a new democratically elected party functionaries at all levels from booth, block, district and state to right up to the AICC.


Former minister of state for home Mullapally Ramachandran has been made the chairman of the election authority and given full charge to hold the elections. "In his (Rahul's) view this is the only way to revive the party and prepare it to deal it with future challenges, including coming state assembly elections," said party sources.


They, however, added that Rahul's view is not shared by many as the only way forward. Also discussed in the meeting was the coming assembly elections in J&K and Jharkhand for which the PCC chiefs shared their problems. For the coming J&K assembly elections, the Congress is expected to finalise and declare the list of its candidates by the end of this week, party sources said.
