Priyanka in Rae Bareli to select Cong committee members

Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday personally conducted interviews to select members of city Congress committees in Rae Bareli,the parliamentary constituency of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday personally conducted interviews to select members of city Congress committees in Rae Bareli,the parliamentary constituency of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

She took about 100 interviews — about three probable candidates for one post for block and ward committees — over the past two days.

Though she looks after the work of Rae Bareli only,the Congress star campaigner also met assembly-level party co-ordinators from Amethi,the parliamentary constituency of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi,at Bhuvemau guesthouse on the day.

Sources said the meeting was held to plan re-organisation of Congress committees in Amethi,the way she has done it in Rae Bareli during the past one year after the 2012 assembly elections.

While she has been a regular visitor to Rae Bareli in the recent past,this was her second visit here within a fortnight and fourth visit in past three months. She has also been holding regular meetings of party workers from Rae Bareli in Delhi.

“She would continue to look after the work of Rae Bareli only. Party co-ordinators from Amethi wanted to meet her with the request to create party organisation in Amethi,like the way she has done it in Rae Bareli. Soon,a similar process for collection of applications and then formation of committees through interviews would start in Amethi as well,” said a party worker.

While she promised to return to Rae Bareli in a month,it was not clear if she would take interviews for creating organisation in Amethi as well.
