Raipur, November 29, 2011
The Congress will organise its district-level workers’ meetings in Balod on Wednesday and in Rajnandgaon on the following day (i.e. December 1). The meeting will be attended by party’s state unit incharge BK Hariprasada, PCC president Nandkumar Patel and CLP leader Ravindra Choubey.
Hariprasada will arrive in the state capital on Wednesday morning from New Delhi through regular flight. He will spend about an hour in Raipur and then proceed to Balod along with Patel and Choubey.
The PCC spokesperson Mahendra Chhabda informed that the meetings would be attended by the office-bearers of panchayat, block and district level besides MLAs, former MLAs and workers. The PCC office-bearers of Balod and Rajnandgaon districts will also attend the meetings, he said.
Chhabda said it would be the party’s first massive gathering at Balod after it became district. The partymen at Balod are eagerly waiting for the meeting and they hope the party would get new lease of life in the newly formed district after the senior leaders would interact with the workers, he added.
According to information, Patel has instructed the Durg Lok Sabha incharge Subhash Sharma and Rajnandgaon Lok Sabha incharge Arun Vora to do the preparations for the meetings in Balod and Rajnandgaon respectively.
The party had organised district-level meetings in Bastar division in Jagdalpur, Dantewada, Kondagaon and Kanker earlier this month. Patel has clearly stated that Congress would also organise block-level workers’ meeting to unite workers and increase party activities to win next Vidhan Sabha elections.
