Shimla: AICC General Secretary and Himachal in charge Ambika Soni today refused to spell out party's strategy in Delhi on the basis of exit poll prediction and said that it would be premature to make any comment on the basis of exit poll results.

"Wait for the results and we will decide the future course of action" said Soni who arrived here for the three day conclave of the party to strengthen the organisation.

"Last time we extended support to AAP to form the government but it resigned after 49 days and question of support to any party would arise if there is a hung assembly", she said.

Soni claimed that the Congress government headed by Sheila Dixit did commendable work during her 15 years term but the party lost in 2013 and to expect miracles within in year would be too much.

Asserting that the Congress party was making all out efforts for revival, she said that a strategy has been drawn to strengthen the party at the grass-root and conclaves of workers are being organised in the states to elicit the view point of the workers and assure their inclusion in decision making.

The AICC president Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi had directed the party general secretaries to hold workers' conclaves in all states to afford opportunity to all the participant to freely express their views and point out the weaknesses.

The action reports prepared on the basis of these conclaves would be submitted to the high command and?the inputs would be used for preparing the future strategy at the plenary session of the Congress, likely to be held in April this year, she said.

"We are making efforts to revive the party by strengthening it at the grass-root and conclaves are being organised in the states to reach out to the workers and different sections of the society to elicit their views and draw up the revival plan, she said.

Grass root level workers along with representatives of block, district and state Congress and senior leaders would share their views and every member would be given at least five minutes to speak.

Replying to a question, Soni said that the government and the party are functioning well in the state and there is complete coordination between them.

Earlier, Soni accompanied by transport minister G S Bali, was given a rousing welcome on her arrival at the Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee office.

Over seventy party functionaries including five ministers participated in the discussion and expressed their views on the first day of the conclave today.
