AICC general secretary Rahul Gandhi concluded his three-day tour to Amethi on Wednesday promising party workers that he would visit them every three months and create a model organisation in Amethi,which would later be replicated in other parts of the state.

He also told the workers that those who damaged the party in the recent Assembly elections would be sidelined during organisational revamp.

Before leaving for Assam,Rahul Gandhi conducted a post-poll review of Jagdishpur Assembly constituency where he shared the outcomes of his five review meetings in Amethi. Rahul was scheduled to take a flight from Lucknow for Delhi,but decided to go to Assam in view of a boat tragedy there.

“He told us that after listening to the complaints and grievances of party workers and leaders in past two days,he had concluded on five points.These were — a need to establish direct connectivity of his office with the people here,be frequent in his visits to his constituency,create awareness about the constructive work done by Congress in the region,sideline those who are not working or had supported other candidates in elections and create a model organisation in Amethi before implementing it in other parts of the state,” said a party leader who was at the meeting in Jagdishpur.

The Congress won Jagdishpur,but sources said workers at the closed-door meeting had many complaints. Rahul assured them that things would change soon.
