NEW DELHI: Embattled Congress to hold a three-day ‘Nav Sankalp Chintan Shivir’ in Udaipur to discuss the poll debacles in five states earlier this year and to prepare for the forthcoming elections with the main focus on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
Speaking to the media here today, Congress general secretary and national spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said, “Congress President Sonia Gandhi has decided to convene the Chintan Shivir of the party in Udaipur from May 13 to 15.”
He said that about 400 Congress activists from every state will participate in the ‘Chintan Shivir’.
Surjewala said that during the three-day meeting, the focus of the deliberations will be on the current political and economic situation and the challenges they pose to our society.
He also said that issues relating to the welfare and well-being of farmers, labourers, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, OBCs, religious and linguistic minorities and women social justice and empowerment and youth will also be discussed in detail.
“In addition, matters relating to organisational restructuring and strengthening will be examined,” the Congress leader said.
He further said that the ‘Chintan Shivir’ will also deliberate on the broad strategy of the Congress for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
On a gradual decline, Congress suffered a massive jolt in the recently held assembly elections in the states of Punjab, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Manipur.
The party is left with an uphill task ahead of the assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh scheduled later this year.
Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections several important states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh will go to poll next year.
