Congress is implementing its “Gujarat model” in Madhya Pradesh – to checkmate BJP in rural areas. Buoyed by its impressive performance in Gujarat elections mainly in the rural areas, Congress is focusing more on rural areas in Madhya Pradesh as well. Moreover, beyond imagination of most party activists, Rahul Gandhi is directly monitoring the election campaign in rural areas and even talking to the district presidents and activists directly.
On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi directly spoke with the district president of Indore Sadashiv Yadav and discussed with him the party’s condition in rural area and the problems activists are facing. “I received a call from Rahul Gandhi on Thursday morning and he discussed about the conditions in rural areas and also about organisational strength of the party at the ground level,” Yadav said.
He added that the Congress chief also directed to coordinate among activists and to contact his office directly if the party workers faced any problem during the campaign. “Rahulji also asked me to bring at least five ground-level activists to his office to discuss the ground level campaign report,” Yadav said.
According to sources, Gandhi’s attempt to get connected with the ground level activists will motivate the party workers and it will also break his image to be surrounded and being contacted by big leaders only.
Along with targeting rural areas, RaGa also tried to learn about the ground report of those areas where he will be visiting in the next coming days and Mhow will be in main focus where he will try to win hearts of both Brahmin and Dalit voters. Four major rural constituencies of Indore district, including Depalpur, Mhow, Rau and Sanwer fall under jurisdiction of Sadashiv Yadav which are crucial for Congress and party leaders are seeing chances to win these seats.
