Mallikarjun Kharge calls for ‘top to bottom’ accountability at key Congress meet | India News


NEW DELHI: Leading the first meeting of the Congress steering committee since he took charge as Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday cracked the whip on party leaders, pushed for organisational accountability from “top to bottom”, and said those who do not measure up to the responsibilities assigned to them must make way for others, reports Swati Mathur.
Kharge made it clear there will be no room for tired leadership under his helmsmanship, nor for letting responsibilities of running the organisations rest on a handful of shoulders. “I want general secretaries and state in-charges to assess their performances and see whether they have visited designated states for at least 10 days every month, held discussions with grassroot level party workers to assess local issues, appointed block and district level committees, inducted new blood, and held campaigns, agitations or programmes on local, state and national issues,” he said.
Kharge said Indians are facing a multi-pronged assault under the Modi government and it was Congress’s ‘rashtradharm’ to step up as the force that protects them. He directed state in-charges to submit roadmaps for organisational action on people’s issues in the next three months and schedules of action plans for the general elections and state polls.
Kharge was addressing the steering committee, which decided to hold a three-day AICC plenary session in February in Raipur to ratify his election as Congress chief and deliberate on the party’s strategy for the elections. The meeting also decided to organise a two-month-long, three-tier campaign from January 26 next year to take the Bharat Jodo Yatra message down to the grassroots.
