The Congress Party will organise a massive agitation across the country from October 15 to 25 over economic slowdown. Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, Congress General Secretary K. C. Venugopal said last evening, “We have decided to organise state-level convention on economic slowdown from 20 to 30 September.”
Venugopal said that the party has planned nationwide massive agitation throughout the country on the issue of economic slowdown between October 15 and 25. The Congress leader also said that the party will celebrate 150 years of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary by organising a large scale ‘padayatra’ on October 2, in order to educate people about Mahatma’s ideals of freedom and Swaraj.
“We have decided to have a membership campaign from October this year which will be both digital and traditional,” he said. Venugopal said that each and every leader of the party will participate in the house-to-house campaign for members in their respective area.
Sharing the plans of the party to train leaders across the country, he said, “We have decided that the Congress will organise training activities, building up workers. It was decided to have a more contemporary training module. The emphasis will be on communicating with youth and to educate them about true nationalism and secularism.”
The announcement was made after Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi held meeting with all the general secretaries, state in-charges, state unit chiefs, Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leaders.
