New Delhi: Ahead of the organisational elections, the Congress has taken stock of the party’s membership drive and other campaigns — including the ‘Jan Jagaran Abhiyan’ – with State presidents and In-Charges ended.
The meeting was called virtually to assess the party’s work and progress in the states.
“Review meetings of general secretaries, In-Charges and PCC presidents were held in online sessions during the last 3 days to apprise the ‘Jan Jagaran Abhiyan’, the Congress membership drive, permanent training programmes and social media interventions carried out in the past few months,” Senior Congress leader K. C. Venugopal has said on Monday January 10.
“In the meeting, the party reviewed progress of these campaigns, discussed ways to improve and assessed reports of the ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ from each of the states.”
“We have resolved to accelerate membership campaign both offline and digital, strictly hold training camps and raise citizen issues in the days ahead,” he added.
The CWC had approved the organisational elections last year. The enrolment of members for organisational elections on payment of Rs. 5 each, started from November 1, 2021 and will end on March 31, 2022.
