Cong leader writes to Sonia, demands outreach programme

New Delhi, Feb 19 (IANS) After Delhi debacle, Congress leader Intikhab Alam ahead of the plenary session has written a letter to the party’s supremo Sonia Gandhi, demanding a nationwide voter connect programme for one month to reach out to every citizen in the country.

Alam, a Congress leader from Bihar, who claims to have support of many leaders in the party, in his letter to the party chief said that “party should launch one month programme to connect voters, asking them why they don’t vote for Congress”.

In the letter, the AICC member has requested Gandhi to launch a programme from “panchayat to state level”.

He said that there should be a “feedback questionnaire” why people are not voting for the party and why they are upset with Congress.

The party’s vote share in Delhi has reduced to less than 5 per cent with 65 candidates lost their deposit in the elections where the party ruled for 15 years.

Congress next litmus test is in Bihar where elections are due this year.

“Congress is conceding its share to the regional parties,” said Alam.

Congress in Bihar is set to go with RJD-led alliance, however, the party is upbeat as the alliance swept to power in neighbouring Jharkhand where JMM-led alliance has defeated BJP.
