Uttarakhand Congress president asks all Congressman to be present at Dehradun from 28th to 29th Oct

The elections of Uttarakhand assembly are due for 2022 and the leaders of the main opposition Congress party has tightened their belts to rejuvenate the party organisation.

The Congress wants to capitalise on the anti incumbency factor in the hilly state finding these elections as a golden opportunity to capture power in Uttarakhand in 2022 as the political trend after every assembly election shows that the main opposition political party of the state is voted to power, since the last twenty years after the formation of the new state.

As a sequel to its ongoing efforts to rejuvenate and strengthen the Congress party right up to the grass roots, the newly appointed Uttarakhand Congress observer n In-charge by the central party high command Devendra Yadav is visiting Dehradun on his three day significant whirlwind political tour to meet each n every office bearer n party worker in order to analyse n asses the party’s performance n subsequently assigning them various important responsibilities to counter the ruling BJP in the hilly state, especially in view of the fast approaching assembly elections which are hardly a year far.

The Uttarakhand Pradesh Congress Committee president Pritam Singh is holding regular preparatory meetings with the state Congress leaders in order to designate responsibilities to them to make necessary arrangements to impress upon the central party observer Devendra Yadav that the state unit is working on a full swing in all the districts of Uttarakhand fully equipped to stage a recome back in the 2022 assembly elections, defeating its main political rival, the ruling BJP.

The state Congress president today held an important meeting with party leaders n office bearers at the party headquarter in Dehradun and also conversed with all the Congress lawmakers, district presidents and office bearers of frontal organisations over phone to present themselves alongwith their active workers at Dehradun on 27th,28th and 29th October.

According to the party’s state General Secretary Navin Joshi prominent amongst those present in today’s meeting convened by state present Pritam Singh were senior Congress leader and former Uttarakhand Congress president Kishore Upadhyay, Vice presidents Surya Kant Dhasmana, senior Congress leader Dhirendra Pratap, general secretaries Navin Joshi, Rajendra Shah, Congress spokesman Garima Dasauni, district president Sanjay Kishore, City Congress president Lal Chand Sharma, etc.

The meeting lasted for over an hour. The meeting unanimously decided to unitedly work hard to make all the necessary arrangements to extend an impressive reception to the newly elected central Uttarakhand in-charge n observer Devendra Yadav as this would be his very first visit in the state after assuming his new significant central assignment. Meanwhile the Uttarakhand State Congress Committee Pritam Singh has while tweeting on Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s article in a newspaper denouncing the the BJP led NDA government for subverting democracy n stifling the voice of people for dissent etc tweeted : Our democracy has been pilloried by the ruling regime in the last six years through utter misuse of power, but what is terrifying is that this regime has started savouring this despotism ! INC president Smt Sonia Gandhi pens down all our thoughts in this exceptional write ups.

However, the fact remains that Congress party is riddled with intercine squabbles with the former CM Harish Rawat and the current president Pritam Singh at loggerglheads, given opportunity to the new political entrant Aam Admi Party to prove its mettle.
