In what can be seen as a first step towards the much-anticipated reshuffle in the Congress organisation, a reallocation of responsibilities in handling affairs of different states may soon take place.
Party vice-president Rahul Gandhi has convened a meeting of all general secretaries and central leaders in charge of states on March 6, leading to wide anticipation in the party quarters that some of them may get new assignments.
While Gandhi's office has not provided any detail agenda of the meeting to the invitees, fixing accountability of general secretaries and states in-charge in case of electoral debacles may also be high on agenda.
In one of his earlier interactions with party leaders Gandhi had emphasised on bringing more accountability of leaders. This time, the Congress second-in-command may define their roles he expects in cases like recommending election tickets for others or electoral tests.
The meeting is also likely to devote time on planning campaigns on the general budget and other measures like the Direct Benefits Transfer.
