Reportedly upset over the 'non-serious' attitude of his party's leaders and workers, state Congress chief Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has sought a report from all district unit heads about those who skipped attending state-wide blood donation camps organised by the party to mark the 69th birth anniversary  of  former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on Tuesday.


Following the decision taken at the party's general house meeting presided over by All-India Congress Committee general secretary and state in-charge Ambika Soni, Sukhu had directed all district units to organise blood donation camps on August 20.

While the party had gathered a record 915 units of blood, with Sukhu himself donating blood along with 130 party leaders and workers at the party headquarters at Rajiv Bhawan, in some districts, the leaders failed to show up, in spite of strict instructions.

“We have asked all district unit heads to file a detailed report about those who missed the August 20 function within five days. Leaders and workers are accountable to the party first,” said Congress spokesman Naresh Chauhan.
