Hinting at a major revamp of district Congress units, PPCC chief Partap Singh Bajwa said on Thursday that new teams could be announced soon to revive the party in the state.
Addressing mediapersons here, Bajwa said, "In the newly created districts, the posts of district presidents are lying vacant. While in other districts, where factionalism is rampant and the Congress has not been able to perform well because of it, effective district heads would be appointed."
"I am going to each district to assess the ground situation. After completing my visit to all the districts, we will finalise the next strategy to revive the Congress in the state," he added.
Bajwa also discussed the plans for the Congress rally scheduled to be held in Jalandhar on April 14.
Bajwa has reportedly deputed his younger brother and Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Fateh Jang Singh Bajwa and former Beas MLA Jasbir Singh Gill as observers to look into the preparations for the rally.
"It has been decided to videograph the participation of leaders and workers to assess the actual work done by party leaders. All the leaders had been asked to inform the observers about the starting points from where they would start for the rally along with the timings, a day before so that observers may send a team of videographers to record the participation," a senior Congress leader said.
