All India Youth Congress (AIYC) chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring has appealed to the rank-and-file of the Congress party to maintain unity as infighting could ruin the chances of the party in the next assembly polls.
“At times the fault for our defeat does not lie with the electorate. The fault lies in our own party as those who do not get party tickets for the assembly poll, decide to rebel and contest as independents,” he pointed out while appealing to all Congressmen to always remain united, no matter what the circumstances are.
Addressing a public rally organised by the Punjab unit of the Youth Congress at Nawanpind village in the Jandiala assembly segment on Sunday, he said at the time of the elections, partymen should sink whatever personnel differences that they may be having with each other. The rally was part of the ‘Kuch Suniye, Kuch Sunaiye, Congress Ko Vapis Le Aaye’ programme that has been launched by the Youth Congress and will cover all the 117 assembly segments of the state. Under this programme, before addressing the rally, Raja Warring interacted with the people to know about their grievances and difficulties. So far, he has covered 20 assembly segments and hopes to complete the task in the next two months.
“Whatever issues or problems that the people highlight will be taken note of. Then we will include some of these issues in the election manifesto of the party. So our manifesto for the next polls will be a people’s manifesto,” he added while interacting with a farmer who complained of the low prices that they get for their produce in the ‘mandis’.
A young speaker complained of the fake criminal cases that were registered against some of his friends in his village as they supported the Congress in the last assembly polls, the AIYC chief said such cases have been registered all over Punjab.
He made it clear that if the Congress comes to power in Punjab, the officials behind the registration of such cases will have to account for their acts.
