Congress in poll gear
GUWAHATI, Aug 19: The Congress is on poll gear with the scheduling of the Lok Sabha election in April-May in 2019. In order to give a poll push to the party, All India Congress Committee’s (AICC) general secretary Harish Rawat is bound for Assam with a six-day visit to the State, beginning August 26.
Rawat was appointed AICC’s Assam observer recently, and as such his visit to the State after his new assignment bears much significance.
According to party sources, during his visit to the State Rawat is supposed to visit Guwahati and upper Assam, and interact with various District Congress Committees (DCCs), Mandal Congress Committees (MCCs) and Block Congress Committees (BCCs). Before winding up his visit to the State on August 31, Rawat is supposed to take the stock of Congress’ organizational strengths in all the 14 Lok Sabha constituencies in Assam. On August 30, Rawat is to meet the presidents of all DCCs at Guwahati.
At present the Congress has three Lok Sabha MPs from Assam.
