This is a political Chintan Shivir. There are so many issues to be discussed but it is the politics of it and the organisation of it that we’re focusing on in Udaipur: Jairam Ramesh

Congress Working Committee Briefing by party leaders RS Surjewala and Jairam Ramesh via INC India

Jairam Ramesh – Former Union Minister:

  • We are going to Udaipur not to draft a manifesto, we’re going to prepare an action plan to strengthen and revive the Congress party to deal with the political, social, economical, and other challenges that face the nation.

  • The idea is that on the 15th of May, we’ll have the Udaipur Nav Sankalp which is really a plan for the organisation.

  • We’re the party aspiring to be in power nationally in 2024 and the assembly elections to be held this year and next.

  • This is a political Chintan Shivir. This is an action-oriented Chintan Shivir.

  • There are so many issues to be discussed but it is the politics of it and the organisation of it that we’re focusing on in Udaipur for 3 days.

  • It will be kicked off by the Congress President. The former Congress President will make the valedictory remarks. Then we’ll adopt the action plan.

  • This is the 4th Chintan Shivir. We’re meeting amidst a grave economic crisis. Today, the Indian Rupee has become a member of the BJP’s Margdarshak Mandal and it closed at Rs.77.

  • There are economic challenges – unemployment, center-state relations; political challenges – the growing polarisation around, religion, language, region, and so on. All this will be discussed but in context of an action plan for the organisation.

  • The Chintan Shivir is not a destination, it is the beginning of a long journey. It is a milestone. After each of the Chintan Shivir, the organisation has undergone a transformation.

  • This is a transformation of an unprecedented magnitude which we are called upon to undertake. This shows that it has taken time to plan and to ensure balanced representation.

  • It demonstrates the Congress President’s unflinching commitment to make the Congress party a rejuvenated party, a revived party, a strengthened party to deal with the political, economic, and social challenges before the country.
