Ahead of the state assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Rajasthan, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) has decided to give its leaders and workers lessons in booth management.

Experts from Delhi and state leaders will impart training to district and block presidents, state executive members and former and present MPs and MLA of the party at a day-long workshop in Jaipur on Monday.

A senior leader of the party on the condition of anonymity said the workshop is being held with an objective to strengthen the party at booth level. Experts from India Centre Foundation will impart the training. “It will be a first stage orientation workshop for macro level booth management where the workers will be trained for effective booth management,” he said.

The leader said the experts will give mock demonstration of electronic voting machines, checklist for voter lists, apprise of norms and rights and tell how to remain vigilant. The workshop will have four different sessions.

In addition, the state leaders will compile issues identified during ‘Mera Booth Mera Gaurav’ compaign from all assembly constituencies. The campaign was aimed at strengthening booth management and connect with the grassroots workers. The statewise identified issues could be incorporated in the party manifesto.

He said a similar workshop will be organised in August, where young workers selected by the PCC from every constituency will be called for an orientation programme.

The workshop on Monday will be attended by more than 500 leaders and workers including AICC general secretary Ashok Gehlot, state incharge Avinash Pande and co-incharges, state party chief Sachin Pilot, screening committee chairperson Kumari Shelja, CP Joshi and Mohan Prakash among others.

The state unit of the Congress is also considering to change heads of a few cells, as they have remained inactive for a long time. The reviews of the cells are being done and the changes will be made accordingly.
