WITH AN eye on the forthcoming Vidhan Sabha elections the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) today made yet another bid to strengthen the party. The party brought all frontal organisations on a common platform and adopted a five-point resolution that includes a move to constitute ‘do or die’ groups to revive the Congress in Uttar Pradesh.
At the same time, Congressmen, who had lost their deposits in the last election, have been asked not to make any request for tickets.
Today’s joint convention of all frontal organisations of the party, also adopted a resolution asking Congressmen to hoist party flags on their rooftops for the next four weeks. Congressmen have been asked to inform at least 10 persons about the achievements of the UPA Government and the failure of Mulayam Singh Yadav Government on the law and order front. Congress activists have also been asked to hold at least one ‘jan adalat’ every week for the same purpose.
AICC in-charge for frontal organisations Oscar Fernandes said the Congress would not be able to win the Vidhan Sabha polls without cooperation of its frontal organisations. All party wings should come forward to strengthen the Congress in UP, he said.
UPCC president Salman Khurshid asked Congressmen to make sacrifices to strengthen the party in UP. CLP leader Pramod Tiwari said there was a tacit understanding between the BJP and the Samajwadi Party. The Congressmen should come forward expose such forces, he said.
