New Delhi: On Tuesday, Congress top brass met once again. They discussed future course of action on organisational reforms discussed during the three-day Chintan Shivir held in Rajasthan’s Udaipur. The party has also released a detailed copy of its Udaipur declaration.
At the meeting, Congress party’s general secretaries, in-charges and CLP leaders, including Priyanka Gandhi were present. The meeting was held at AICC headquarters in Delhi.
According to sources, it was decided that a two-day conclave will be held in every state so that the members of Pradesh Congress Committees (PCC) are informed about the changes that are to be made in the coming months. Also, state units will prepare a list of empty posts at block, district and state levels.
On May 18, a meeting between the General Secretary and in-charges is scheduled to be held at AICC Headquarters.
The resolution reads: Indian nationalism is the core character of the Congress and in contrast, the pseudo-nationalism of the BJP is centred on the hunger for power. It is the duty of every Congressperson to bring out this difference to the people. In the prevailing extraordinary circumstances, the political group stressed that every Congressperson should imbibe the principles of Bhartiyata and Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.
“Today, the ruling party has launched a conspiratorial attack on the Indian Constitution, the principles and rights enshrined in it and on Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s ideas. The first blow of the attack on Constitutional rights is on the dalits, adivasis, backward classes, minorities, women and the poor of the country. Simultaneously, all the autonomous bodies and institutions protecting the rights of citizens have been undermined and hollowed out to serve the interests of those in power,” the resolution read.
The declaration stated that in order to protect pirit of nationalism and democracy, the Indian National Congress is determined to establish dialogue. They are determined to contact with all like-minded parties and will keep the avenues open for forming pragmatic alliances according to the political situation. Ensuring the organisation’s strength, capability, and presence in all blocks and districts of the country.
