New working committee in MP Cong within a fortnight: Singh

Madhya Pradesh Congress unit will get a new working committee in next 10 to 15 days, said party State in-charge Jitendra Singh here on Sunday. For the past two days, the Congress leaders are brainstorming on the debacle the party faced in the assembly and Lok Sabha elections.

A few Congress leaders have questioned the present working committee saying that some of the members of the committee are the supporters of the party leaders who left the Congress in run up to the LS elections and this dented the morale of the party. Singh assured the party leaders that in the coming 10 to 15 days, the new committee will be announced.

The senior leader presided over a meeting of LS elections candidates on Sunday and took the feedback of their polling details, like number of votes, margin of the defeat including the margin in the last election, their strength and weakness and other relevant details.

Singh inquired about the role of district, block, Mandlam, sector and booth presidents in the elections and also the presence and role of other political parties like AAP, SP, BSP in the state.

Singh asked the local Congress leaders about the key factor that led to the defeat of the party in Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. He asked the party leaders the changes they want to see in the Congress and at the grassroots to uplift the party in upcoming elections.
