“It is important to discuss politics in reality rather than mere slogans”

Former Chief Minister Mr Veerappa Moily on Friday called on Congress workers to strengthen the party at the stand level to take on the BJP in the upcoming assembly elections.

Speaking at a workshop, Nava Sankalpa Shibira of the party workers in Udupi said, “If we are not strong at the stand level, it will be difficult to fight the BJP in the elections.”

He said it is important to discuss politics in reality rather than mere slogans that will not help strengthen the party. “The Congressional base has failed to communicate to the people the success of Congressional governments,” he said.

Mr Moily said each stall should have a minimum of 15 to 25 infantrymen registered as members and the party can hold workshops for them to boost morale.

Acting Chairman of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee R. Dhruvanarayan said that the party’s membership campaign was not taken seriously by the District Congress Committee in Udupi and that district unity should focus on increasing membership.

Later, speaking to reporters, Mr Dhruvanarayan said that 25,000 new members had signed up for the recent membership drive held across the state.

Karnataka is ahead of all other states in the country in membership registration, he said.

He said that the party’s internal elections will be announced soon. Former Union Minister Sudarshan Nachiappan has been appointed Pradesh Returning Officer (PRO) for the management of internal elections in the state, while District Returning Officers (DROs) have also been appointed for each district . Block Tellers (BROs) were appointed for each Assembly constituency.

“New chairpersons of the Congressional bloc committees will be elected democratically and not based on the recommendations of party MPs or other influential party leaders,” he added.
