New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi
Monday said the Bihar Assembly election is "important" for the
party and hoped that it will be able to revive itself in the
state with collective and cohesive work.
"This is an important election for us... The Congress will
revive itself in Bihar if we work collectively and
cohesively," she said in her `Letter to the Congresspersons`
in the latest issue of party mouthpiece Congress Sandesh.
Gandhi said Congress workers must apprise the people
about the Central development funds given to the state in the
last six years.
"Over the past six years, our government has ensured an
exponential increase in funds to the Bihar government for
various development schemes and projects. Our party workers
must take this message to the people," she said.
Assembly election is slated to be held in JD(U)-BJP-
ruled Bihar later this year.
On the National Advisory Council, of which she is the
chairperson, Gandhi said that it was set up as an interface
with civil society and has begun its work in right earnest.
"The objective behind the setting up of the NAC is to
provide policy and legislative inputs to government with
special focus on social policy and the rights of the
disadvantaged groups," she said.
Gandhi expressed hope that the NAC will play an important
role in identifying and recommending measures to ensure that
the flagship programmes of the government are "implemented in
the best interests of the common man".
