New Delhi: Congress president Rahul Gandhi will present the party’s vision document at its upcoming plenary session which will set the tone for its poll strategy in the Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections where it seeks to oust the BJP from power.

Gandhi, who took over the reins of the party last December, will present the Congress vision document and the political roadmap for the party at the plenary session to be held from 16 to 18 March, a source said.

The document will act as a “guiding light” to help party workers upstage the BJP from power at the Centre in 2019 and in some key states where elections are slated later this year, the source added.

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

The plenary meet, to be held at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium here, will be attended by senior leaders starting from block presidents.

At the three-day brainstorming session, the party will pass four resolutions one each on the political and economic fronts, another on foreign policy and the fourth on agriculture and unemployment.

The party’s key focus would be on the issue of agriculture and unemployment, the source said.

The Congress wants to highlight the agrarian crisis in the country and joblessness among the people to help garner public support, the party leader said.

The session assumes importance as it will be the first after Gandhi’s presidentship and the first to be held with a new leader in two decades.

On an opening day, top Congress leaders who are a part of the Steering Committee formed in place of the Working Committee will discuss the resolutions and chalk out the agenda for the three-day event.

During the next two days, various issues dealing with politics, economics, foreign policy, agriculture and social justice will be discussed at length after which the resolutions would be passed.

Where China & India, Resisting & Improving Democracy, Meet

What you see in Hong Kong is China resisting democracy; what you see in Kashmir is India promoting it; a reasonably capitalist China does not offer freedom politically but India, held back at times by the choice of the people, is still opening up; there could be a point of convergence as the two nations move in opposite directions
