Six point resolution passed
The leadership of Uttarakhand Congress held interactions with the representatives of frontal organisations of the party in the state at Rajiv Bhawan on Thursday. In the meeting the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh, former PCC president Kishore Upadhyaya, leader of opposition (LoP) in Uttarakhand assembly Indira Hridayesh and the presidents of frontal organisations participated. Six proposals put forward by PCC president Pritam Singh were passed unanimously during the meeting. Singh said that the Congress party strongly condemns the political vendetta against the Congress leaders and legal action on the organisations associated with the Congress party like Indira Gandhi trust, Rajiv Gandhi trust and foundation. He warned that the discriminatory actions should be stopped otherwise the Congress party would hit the streets in protest. Singh said that the minimum wage in the MNREGA works should be increased to Rs 300 and at least 250 days of employment should be provided under the scheme. He said that the state government should revoke the decision to deduct one day’s salary every month of the state government employees as they are at the forefront of the war against the Covid-19 in the state. The PCC President said that the sale of the public sector units to private players should be stopped as it has resulted in huge unemployment. He said that drug abuse is increasing among the youth in the state but the state government is taking no steps to reduce the menace. Singh said that the state government should take immediate and concrete measures to address the issue. He added that the state government should waive off the bills of electricity and water and other taxes as a large number of people have lost their jobs during the lockdown period.
The heads of all front organisations unanimously passed all the six resolutions and assured that the frontal organisations would work shoulder to shoulder with the party leadership.
The president of state women Congress Sarita Arya, President of Youth Congress Sumit Bhullar, NSUI President Mohan Bhandari, INTUC president and former minister Hira Singh Bisht, Kisan Congress president Sushil Rathi, SC ST cell chairman Raj Kumar and heads of other frontal organisations of the party took part.
Cong plans united show against state govt
After a successful show of unity between its different factions, the Uttarakhand Congress has now come into an election mode. In the three day deliberations in which the top leadership of the party interacted with the Vice Presidents, general secretaries and heads of frontal organisations for three days the party leaders were unanimous that warring factions should bury the hatchet and concentrate on the assembly elections due in early 2022. On the directive of the party high command former Chief Minister and General Secretary of All India Congress (AICC) Harish Rawat, PCC president Pritam Singh, former PCC president Kishore Upadhyaya and Leader of Opposition (LoP) in state assembly Indira Hridayesh took part in deliberations. The PCC president Pritam Singh said on Thursday that the party would soon launch a programme in the state after having discussions with all the senior leaders.
