New Delhi: With BJP making corruption a
major issue and L K Advani planning to take out a yatra,
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday asked partymen to gear up
to meet the political challenge.
A meeting of the party general secretaries and
in-charges of states saw Gandhi underlining the need for
implementation of the action plan unveiled by party chief
Sonia Gandhi at the party plenary at Burari here in December
Sonia Gandhi had given a clarion call to confront
corruption head on and had come out with an action plan for
bringing transparency in governance.
This was the first meeting of the party general
secretaries after Gandhi`s return from the US after a surgery
from which she is said to have recovered well.
AICC General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi said the meeting
decided all state incharges will send a report to the Congress
President on the work done in their states in her absence and
the report will also carry details of whatever they
implemented of the action plan as suggested at Burari.
"The meeting also discussed what programmes could be
taken up in various states keeping in mind the current
political situation there", Dwivedi said.
The meeting began with members expressing happiness at
the successful recovery of the Congress President and her
return here, after which all state-incharges discussed the
initiatives taken by them in their jurisdictions.
Except AICC General Secretary Vilas Muttemwar and CWC
member Shakeel Ahmed, all other office-bearers were present in
