On Monday, the apex decision-making body of Congress met to chalk out the modalities of the upcoming “Chintan Shivir” of the party in Udaipur. President Sonia Gandhi in the CWC meeting said that there are “no magic wands” and selfless work will only revive the party and its time to repay the party for the future.
Sonia Gandhi also said, “One may remember that at our last held meeting, I had made an announcement regarding the organizing of a Chintan Shivir soon. Therefore, we are therefore meeting in Udaipur on May 13, 14, and 15. Around 400 of our colleagues will take participation. The majority of them hold or have held one position or the other in the organization or in the Union government. We have made every effort to ensure balanced representation – balance from each and every angle”.
The Congress leadership has already announced six separate groups – economic, political, farmers, social justice, youth, and organizational issues. Delegates have already been informed about the group in which they have to participate.
The Congress held its “Chintan Shivirs” in the years 1998, 2003, and 2013. Out of these, the 2003 session in Shimla was beneficial for the Congress party as it came to power a year later after defeating the NDA government.
