Personal interaction with the workers is a must to stay united and reduce party infightings,said new District Congress Committee (DCC) president Pawan Dewan,while taking formal charge from outgoing president Jagmohan Sharma on Thursday.
Admitting that personal interaction between leaders and workers had been missing for the many years now,Dewan said that such things will not be repeated in the future so that the party can will all the six Vidhan Sabha seats in the upcoming elections from Ludhiana (urban).
Many workers who had not stepped out of their houses for more than 10 years and not participated in any important party meet were here on Thursday,he added.
More than 1,000 workers attended the function. As a show of strength,a procession was taken out from Kumra Palace,which ended at Congress Bhawan.
We have tried to sort out all differences among party workers. More focus will be given in the coming days to ensure that the workers are happy, said Dewan.
MP Manish Tiwari,who was the chief guest on the occasion,asked the workers to work hard for the elections. Preparations should start now. There is little time and a lot of work is left to be done, he added.
Speaking at the meet,MLA Jassi Khangura said that the Akalis will not be spared and be taken to task once the Congress government comes to power. It is a sure thing that the next government will be by the Congress. So,all those who have troubled our workers with false cases will not be spared, Khangura said.
Meanwhile,nukkad meetings of the workers are set to begin from May 28.
