Maharashtra: Congress plans foot marches from August 9-15
After a delay of nearly one-and-a-half months, the Congress has said that the manifesto announced at the Nav Sankalp workshop held by the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee at Shirdi on June 1 and 2 will be implemented across the state.
On Monday, Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) chief Nana Patole announced that a 100-day action plan will be implemented across the state, including foot marches in each district between August 9 to 15, and a ‘Bharat Jodo’ campaign from October 2.
Party leaders said the Congress will raise its voice against the Centre’s decision to impose GST on essential commodities, rising inflation, unemployment, failing economy and the Agnipath scheme. Congress will also respond to BJP’s ‘Bharat Todo’ politics with a ‘Bharat Jodo’ campaign, they added.
While a public awareness campaign will be held by taking out foot marches in each district between August 9 to 15, a ‘Bharat Jodo’ campaign will be launched in the state from October 2.
In June, the Maharashtra Congress had held a two-day session at Shirdi, following which the All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary in charge of Maharashtra, H K Patil, was expected to release papers on the basis of which the party line would be decided. Instead, MPCC chief Patole addressed a rally. After an initial plan to release these documents on July 4, they were eventually released on Monday.
Speaking at a press conference at the Congress’ Tanna House headquarters, Patole said six groups were formed to hold detailed discussions on six subjects on the lines of the national conclave held at Udaipur. These six groups discussed and submitted their reports and it was based on these that the Shirdi manifesto and action plan were prepared.
Senior leaders like Congress Legislature Party leader Balasaheb Thorat, former chief ministers Prithviraj Chavan and Ashok Chavan, former ministers Nitin Raut, Vijay Wadettiwar and Varsha Gaikwad, Dr Vishwajit Kadam, state working president Chandrakant Handore, and Naseem Khan were also present.
Ashok Chavan, who headed the political group, said that a review committee will be formed at the district level to decide whether to form an alliance with a like-minded party in the state at the local level.
