Congress Steering Committee Meeting: After the Gujarat and Himachal assembly elections, political parties have now started preparations for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Under this, a meeting of the steering committee of the Congress was called. This meeting started under the chairmanship of Mallikarjun Kharge, in which all the big leaders of the party including Sonia Gandhi, Ashok Gehlot, Bhupesh Baghel attended. During this, Congress President Kharge addressed all the leaders and kept his point on all the issues.
Inaugurating the meeting, Kharge said, “I welcome all of you to the first meeting of the Steering Committee. I also thank all the colleagues of the Indian National Congress across the country, who reposed faith in me for the post of Congress President.”
Kharge asked these questions to the office bearers
During this, Mallikarjun Kharge asked all the general secretaries and in-charges that what changes have been made at the ground level. He asked- Do the general secretaries and in-charge officials visit the provinces under their responsibility for at least 10 days in a month? Have you visited every district, unit and discussed with party leaders, are there local problems to be known? Have all the District Congress and Block Congress Committees been formed? Is your organization fighting for the people according to the ground reality? Have more and more new faces been given a chance at the block and district level? How many units are there where the district and block have not been changed for five years?
talk of giving chance to new people
Kharge asked the office bearers that in your state, for which you are in charge, what is the outline for the movement on the issues of organization and public interest in the next 30 days to 90 days? In the provinces where assembly elections are to be held between today and 2024, what is the planning and activity schedule till the elections. The Congress President said in a stern tone that some colleagues have assumed that the deficiency in fulfilling the responsibility will be ignored. This is neither right nor acceptable. Those who are unable to fulfill the responsibility, they will have to give a chance to new colleagues.
‘Bharat Jodo Yatra became a national mass movement’
Referring to the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Kharge said, Friends, the “Bharat Jodo Yatra”, which is going on under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, who is writing a new history in the country, will complete 88 days and enter the border of Rajasthan at night. Bharat Jodo Yatra has now taken the form of a national movement. Such a movement, which is a call for a decisive war against the back-breaking inflation, fierce unemployment, intolerable economic and social inequality, politics of hatred in the country. Crores of people of the country are associated with the resolve of Rahul Gandhi ji and the Congress. Among them there are a large number of people who were not associated with the Congress, or used to criticize us. The biggest success of this journey is that Bharat Jodo Yatra has taken the form of a national mass movement.
The government is attacking the development and progress of the country- Kharge
Attacking the government further, Kharge said, the Modi government has been attacking the people of the country, their rights, their hopes and the responsibility of protecting them lies with the Indian National Congress. When the monthly budget of the poor or middle class or employed gets spoiled, then it is an attack on his life. When the country’s economy has turned upside down and the country’s rupee keeps falling along with the credibility of the government, then it is an attack on the development and progress of the country. When there is no employment for crores of capable youth of the country, and the existing jobs also keep decreasing, then it is an attack on the livelihood of the country.
Kharge said, when there is an atmosphere of insecurity among Dalits, tribals, backward, minorities, deprived and exploited people of the country, and the government suppresses their rights every day, then it is an attack on the life of the working people of the country. When the farmer of the country is forced to commit suicide at the doorstep of Delhi, and he has to fight with his own government for the guarantee of MSP, then it is an attack on the life of the food giver. When the neighboring country China is trying to occupy our land and build new military every day and the government remains silent, then it is an attack on the integrity of the country.
In the big meeting of the Congress, President Mallikarjun Kharge insisted on fixing accountability in the party. He also asked the in-charge for a roadmap for the next three months. Kharge said that we have to fight together against all these and against the ruling forces who are sowing the seeds of division. This is the duty of all of us as well as the national religion.
