Party president Sonia Gandhi will make the final decision on the entry of election strategist Prashant Kishore into the Congress. The role of peace in the 2024 national elections will be decided in the coming days. The panel has been directed to inform Sonia Gandhi of the decision within a week after discussing the proposals put forward by Prashant.
After discussions with Priyanka Gandhi and senior party leaders, Sonia Gandhi met Prashant Kishore for the second time in three days. Rahul Gandhi did not attend the discussion. According to Congress sources, Sonia Gandhi, in consultation with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, will take a final decision on the exact role of Prashant Kishore and whether he will join or support the party.
The party’s election strategy is ahead of the 2024 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. Meetings will continue in the coming days. Former Madhya Pradesh chief ministers Digvijay Singh, Kamal Nath and Jairam Ramesh were present at the discussion.
The forthcoming elections in Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh will be crucial for the Congress party. Prashant Kishore’s project is aimed at focusing on these states.
In the project recommendations, Prashant points out that at the booth level, WhatsApp groups, communication teams, the strengths and weaknesses of the party in each constituency, potential candidates and issues, as well as issues affecting the daily lives of the people, Prashant said.
The party is looking for new avenues as the direct defeat in five states has called into question the very existence of the Congress. Discussions on this had already started last month. The party has also decided to hold a think tank next month.
