Congress Himachal Mission: The Congress, which is busy preparing for the Himachal Pradesh Assembly elections to be held at the end of the year, has decided to give the command of each district to a national secretary. The special thing is that one-third of the dozen national secretaries posted in Himachal Pradesh belong to Priyanka Gandhi’s team. The leaders who have got the command to strengthen the organization before the elections in the twelve districts of Himachal Pradesh are- Deepika Pandey, Chandan Yadav, Rajesh Tiwari, Rohit Chaudhary, Dheeraj Gurjar, Pradeep Narwal, Vikas Upadhyay, Vijay Singla, Chetan. Chauhan etc.
Of the youth leaders who have been given priority, more than half have served in the recent elections in the states. On Saturday, the General Secretary of all these leaders KC Venugopal and in-charge Rajeev Shukla held a meeting at the Congress headquarters and gave necessary instructions. Sources believe that the way four leaders working with Priyanka Gandhi in UP have been deployed in Himachal Pradesh, it is clear that Priyanka Gandhi will have a special focus on the Congress’s mission to return to power in the hill state. Recently too, the Congress leadership reshuffled the state organization and made Pratibha Singh, wife of former Chief Minister Late Virbhadra Singh, the state president.
Congress gave a blow to BJP in the by-elections last year
In the by-elections held last year, the Congress gave a big blow to the BJP by winning Mandi Lok Sabha and all three assembly seats. But after this the Congress lost badly to the Aam Aadmi Party in the neighboring state of Punjab. AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal is constantly touring Himachal and the Aam Aadmi Party has thrown full force in the state. In such a situation, the challenge before the Congress is to keep the anti-BJP vote united.
Himachal has high hopes of victory in Congress
On the basis of Himachal bypoll results, Congress has high hopes of victory in Himachal Pradesh. This is the reason that right after the Chintan Shivir, the party has started on Mission Himachal. This is the reason that a national secretary has been appointed in each district to fix the homework of the organization, whose work will start in a week. A plan is also being made to convene a meeting of the Congress Working Committee in Shimla in June.
