Congress to roll out roadmap to halt BJP in 2019 polls

The Congress is seeking to build a larger front of opposition parties to stop the BJP from coming back to power

New Delhi:  The 84th plenary of the Congress, its president Rahul Gandhi’s first since his elevation to the top slot, is set to roll out a roadmap for reversing its downward electoral journey and will focus on strengthening Party organisationally to halt the BJP’s juggernaut led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The meeting is being attended by the party’s top leaders, including former prime minister Manmohan Singh and former party chief Sonia Gandhi, its mandarins from across the country and workers. The party is hoping that around 15,000 party members will attend the two-day open session, beginning today.

Party sources said the party would adopt four resolutions on the political situation, economic front, foreign affairs, and agriculture, unemployment and poverty alleviation. The party will highlight its vision on each sphere and compare it with the current situation.

At the two-day brainstorming session, two resolutions, including the one on the political situation, will be taken up and adopted today, while two others, including the one on jobs, will be taken up on tomorrow.

The political resolution, the sources say, will also indicate the party’s plans for forging coalitions with like-minded parties. The Congress is seeking to build a larger front of opposition parties to stop the BJP from coming back to power.

“This plenary session will be very different from other sessions this time as the Congress president is seeking to accord preference to workers than leaders,” a leader said, adding the focus would be shifted from the Congress chief to workers who will be allowed to speak up on the party’s future strategy.

The session will end with an address of the Congress president, where he would set the tone for the party’s plan forward for the upcoming elections.

Gandhi, who took over the reins of the party in December last year, will present the Congress vision document and the political roadmap for the party and the document will act as a “guiding light” to help party workers.

The session will also look into future alliances that the party foresees will be needed for defeating the BJP, a Congress leader said.
