Agartala: A day after the Congress Party’s “Chintan Shivir” concluded at Udaipur, Rajasthan; Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee President Birajit Sinha on Monday said that his party would soon start working in keeping with a “master plan” for a resurgence in the poll-bound state.

Sinha said the AICC has drafted state-specific plans to make sure that Congress stands on its feet across the country. All the PCCs have been given the responsibility to execute the master plans in letter and spirit.

Sinha also ruled out any possibilities of a pre-poll alliance with other political parties and maintained that the party’s main focus has now shifted to restructuring the party from the grassroots.

Addressing a press conference at Congress Bhavan, Sinha said, “We have plans to constitute Mandal Congress, a new feature in the existing organisational setting. Right now, we have Block Congress which stands responsible for an assembly constituency and all the booth committees directly report to the Block Congress.

The Mandal Congress will be formed beneath the block congress comprising 15 to 20 booth committees to decentralise the web of organisation. This will help the party to focus on the booth committees that are the primary part of any election mechanism. Within June, all the committees will be constituted.”

Congress leader Asish Saha further explained, that as per the primary assessment each of the block Congress committees has 50 to 60 booths under their jurisdiction.

“Now we have just added another monitoring body in between the block congress and booth committees,” said Saha.

The Congress party also slammed the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party for its underperformance in its tenure of a little over four years and sought clarification from the saffron party about this sudden change of guard.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have always showered praise on Biplab Kumar Deb through social media posts. When Home Minister Amit Shah was visiting the state, he lauded Deb for the development. Whenever any voice of dissent rose against Deb, the party high command always turned a deaf ear to the rebels. But, when everything is settled down, what prompted the party’s high command to affect such a drastic turnaround is still a mystery. I would like to urge the BJP to make things clear before the public,” said Saha.    

Speaking on the viability of united opposition to pose a challenge before the BJP in Tripura, he said, “Congress is the only alternative in the state as well at the national level. Our sole motive is to revamp our organisation till the booth level.”
