With an eye on the forthcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Congress is planning to organise several public meetings in the state to be addressed by party President Sonia Gandhi and Lok Sabha MP Rahul Gandhi and has prepared a film and a final chargesheet on the performance of the present Samajwadi Party government.
"After revamping city and district units, we have decided to hold a number of meetings all over the state to be addressed by Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. We have also prepared a final chargesheet on the S P government depicting its failures," UPCC President Salman Khursheed told newsmen in Lucknow on Sunday.
"UPCC has also prepared a film - "UPnama: Kya Khoya Kya Paya" (what was lost and what achieved in UP) which would be shown in all the districts.
The film depicts what the state had "lost" during the non-Congress regimes in the past 10-15 years, Khursheed said adding the next three months would be crucial for the party.
He said Congress was also open to talks with small regional parties in the state in view of the forthcoming assembly polls.
Declining to name them, he said the process of initiating dialogue had already been started.
Asked about any talks or prospective alliance with former Prime Minister V P Singh and Raj Babbar's Jan Dal, he said decision in this regard would be taken by party high command.
"We are open to talks with anyone," he said adding AICC General Secretary incharge of UP affairs Ashok Gehlot would be meeting Sonia Gandhi on July four to review the situation in the state, especially after reorganisation of district and city units.
