The Uttarakhand Congress will deploy leaders at the CM office to ensure coordination between the workers and chief minister Harish Rawat, said state party chief Kishore Updhayay on Sunday.
Also, one of the seven ministers in the Rawat cabinet will meet Congress workers and listen to their grievances at the party office once a week.
“The decisions were taken in the coordination committee meeting on August 24 in Delhi,” said Upadhyay at a press meet in Dehradun.
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and party’s Uttarakhand in-charge Ambika Soni had called Rawat and Upadhyay to Delhi to bury their differences and asked them to work for strengthening the organisation ahead of elections.
The state Congress chief said he had given the chief minister a list of 134 names for appointment as heads of state boards, committees, councils and government PSUs but no decision had been taken so far.
“We hope the chief minister takes early action on the list made by the party. We are sending another list soon,” said Upadhyay.
He said the Delhi coordination meeting also decided that the Congress would hold Vikas Yatra across all the 70 assembly constituencies in September to take on opposition BJP’s ‘pardafash’ rallies.
“The Vikas Yatra rallies will be held to highlight the good works of the state government and expose the state BJP and its activities,” said Upadhyay.
