New Delhi: With the party facing
difficulties, several Congress leaders on Thursday made a strong
plea to Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to have more direct
interaction with party workers.

A meeting convened by former Union Minister Aslam Sher
Khan saw several speakers lamenting the "growing gap"
between party workers and the leadership which they said is
affecting the organisation.

JK Jain, who was CPP Secretary during Rajiv Gandhi`s
tenure as Congress chief, said that party workers are getting
increasingly frustrated due to failure to give their feedback
to the party high command.

Former CWC member Harikesh Bahadur as also senior
leaders and former MPs like Virendra Kataria, RR Sahu and
Kamal Chaudhary and Sunil Shastri spoke at the meeting.

The subject of the deliberations was "How to
revitalise the Congress Party and inspire Congressmen to
strengthen our political system, governance and national
values".
