Congress CM’s Conclave to Target NDA’s Failures
Congress will target the NDA government over “neglect” of the social sector among other issues.
The Congress chief ministers conclave in New Delhi on June 9 is expected to be an attempt to take the sheen out of the first anniversary celebrations of the Modi government. The Congress party is expected to discuss issues like the agrarian crisis.
Party spokesperson RPN Singh said that the Congress party will target the NDA government over “neglect” of the social sector and its “failure” to address the problems of farmers.
Noting that Congress President Sonia Gandhi has always been interacting with party chief ministers, Singh said that the which the Congress has taken up inside and out of Parliament will be addressed at the conference.
The conclave is expected to discuss ways and means of reaching out to the people, especially in the rural pockets.
The conclave is the first since the Congress lost power in May last year. The party is in power in nine states -- Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Assam, Mizoram, Manipur, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.
Sonia Gandhi, who has been at the helm since 1998, had started the practice of such a conclave when the Congress was in Opposition at the Centre.
The Congress President has already targeted the Centre and the Prime Minister in Parliament accusing it of “obstinate arrogance”.
