Congress has also adopted the same pattern in Himachal Pradesh. Elections will be held in Himachal later this year. The party had appointed 67 new posts here in May, including three senior vice presidents, six vice presidents, 13 general secretaries and 41 secretaries.
The Congress party is giving new jobs to its workers on a large scale in Gujarat. In doing so, it follows an established pattern. However, this pattern has not yielded real results in other states.After appointing 75 general secretaries, 25 vice presidents and 19 district presidents in March, the Congress party on Thursday appointed seven working presidents for the Gujarat unit. The new working presidents also include Vadgam constituency MP Jignesh Mevani, who has not yet joined the Congress party. The new working presidents include four incumbent deputies Lalit Kagthra, Ritwik Makwana, Ambareesh Der and Himmatsinh Patel. Qadir Pirzada and Indravijay Singh Gohil are the only two active presidents who are not deputies. Elections will be held in Gujarat in December this year.
a predictable pattern
Congress has also adopted the same pattern in Himachal Pradesh. Elections will be held in Himachal later this year. The party had appointed 67 new posts here in May, including three senior vice presidents, six vice presidents, 13 general secretaries and 41 secretaries. It is not the first time Congress has created a massive organization in an electoral state. He has been doing this in other states. The exercise failed miserably in Punjab, where it lost power to the Aam Aadmi Party in March.
National Executive President
The appointment of seven new working presidents in Gujarat comes at a time when the party’s central leadership is not meeting the demand to appoint a working president. Its president Sonia Gandhi is rarely seen in public. Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi are paying more attention only in Kerala and Uttar Pradesh. Rahul Gandhi does not hold any formal office in the party, he is a Wayanad MP in Kerala. Priyanka Gandhi is the national secretary general in charge of Uttar Pradesh. Congress avoids making a working president nationwide. It is believed that the reason for this is the suspicion of the Gandhi family that if a president who is not Gandhi becomes active and popular, it can become a challenge for them.
pacification policy to stop migration
The formation of mass organizations in electoral states can be seen as a policy of appeasement. The goal of this is for leaders not to leave the party when the elections come. This is not being done to increase the reach of the party among the masses, however, 18 seats in the Punjab Assembly of 117 seats, two seats in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly of 403 seats, 19 seats in the Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly of 70 seats, 40 seats Congress could win only 11 seats in the Goa Legislative Assembly and five seats in Manipur, which has 60 seats. This demonstrates the failed policy of Congress to please local leaders, the fate of the party is on these workers. No concerted effort has been made in the last five years to strengthen the party between the two elections.
Hardik Patel emerged as the leader of the mass movement
It should be noted that Hardik Patel, leader of Patidar in Gujarat, left the Congress party in June this year and joined the BJP. His complaint was that he had no power or fixed role as working president of the Gujarat unit of Congress. Patel was a leader who emerged from a mass movement. He had opened a front against the BJP government in Gujarat and eventually joined the same party. This shows the sad position of the Congress party in Gujarat. Gujarat has been ruled by the BJP since 1998, when Patel was barely five years old.
Congress has no plan
Due to lack of planning and efforts, Congress sees no hope of defeating the BJP in its sixth consecutive attempt. But you have hope in Gujarat, which now has governments in two states, Delhi and Punjab. In so many states, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, Congress is in power.
AAP is making forays into Gujarat
As the elections approach, AAP supreme Arvind Kejriwal is constantly going to Gujarat. He was in the state for two days this week, where he called on voters not to waste their votes in support of Congress. Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal said Congress is not in a position to remove the BJP from power in Gujarat. . He asked his leaders to pay attention to voters who are not happy with the BJP and do not want to vote in Congress. It is clear that the AAP is preparing to kick off the Gujarat Congress. And he wants to replace Congress as the state’s main opposition party. Now, how Congress will deal with the AAP threat and how it will compete with the BJP by making the party organization heavy, will be a matter to be seen, because Elections at the home of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are close to the state of Gujarat.
