HECTIC MEETINGS are under way here to make the August 8 rally of the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi a grand success. Separate meetings of party workers at ward-level are being conducted. District president of the party Mahesh Dixit is presiding over these meeting and till date 20 wards have been covered.
Delhi chief minister Sheila Dixit will also be coming on July 26 to galvanise the preparations for the rally that will mark the formal launching of the party’s campaign in the state for municipal corporation and Vidhan Sabha elections. For the newly appointed district president of the party the rally has come as a challenge. Dixit is leaving nothing to chance for ensuring the success of the rally.
Dixit was appointed district president of the party after replacing Abdul Mannan who held the coveted post for nine years and two months. Ensuring success of the rally has become more challenging for Dixit as his detractors have withdrawn themselves from the event.
Talking to newsmen here on Monday Dixit said, “Ward-wise meetings are being conducted each day for the success of rally.” A public campaign had also been launched in the city to polarise the masses for the success of rally.
Replying to a query, Dixit said after the de-limitation of wards selection of party candidates would be done all over again.
“The process for the selection will start soon and the final list will be forwarded to the state president of the party,” he said.
Replying to a query about the Youth For Equality (Y4E) campaign, requesting people to boycott Sonia Gandhi’s rally, Dixit said, “Such campaigns will not affect the rally. However, if the students want we can arrange their meeting with the party president.”
Every individual is free to express his view but it will not have nay bearing on the success of the rally, asserted Dixit.
Meanwhile, the DCC organised a public meeting at Sujatganj for ensuring the success of Gandhi’s rally, here on Monday.
State vice-president of Youth Congress Shamim-Ull-Haq conducted the meeting. District president of the Congress Mahesh Dixit, chairman of the Minority Cell of the party Abdul Mannan, Union Minister of State for Home Shriprakash Jaiswal, MLA Sanjeev Dariyabadi were felicitated.
