After having reviewed the state governance over the last 10 days, chief minister Prithviraj Chavan will now make efforts to know of the state Congress organisation on Tuesday.
Chavan will meet presidents of district Congress units, state office-bearers (MPCC), heads of several frontal organisations at party headquarter Tilak Bhavan in Parel.
He plans to spend more than three hours with the rank and file. The open house interaction will begin at 2pm.
Primarily, the exercise will help Chavan in getting introduced with the leaders who he has never met before as he spent almost 20 years in the national politics. His role in state politics was limited to home district Satara and the state’s of which he was in-charge AICC general secretary.
“Chavan needs to know aspirations of grass root leaders because of growing interference of the Nationalist Congress Party which has diminished Congress’ existence in many districts,” said a senior leader, requesting anonymity, as he is not authorised to speak to the media.
Chavan had told the HT in an interview on November 12 that he wanted to grow the Congress. “Our presence in certain districts needs to be noticed.”
