Rahul ji, Normal Secretaries and In-Fees, PCC Presidents and associates.
You might be all properly conscious of the CWC Assembly we had a couple of days again. I’m positive you’ve learn the three resolutions handed by the CWC and that they’ve been communicated and distributed in your states. Right this moment’s get-together is a follow-up to that assembly.
The detailed schedule for full-fledged organisational elections is already with you. The nation-wide Congress membership enrolment programme begins on November 1st, 2021, and runs by means of until March thirty first, 2022.
I take this chance to stress to every one of many PCC Presidents, Normal Secretaries and In-Fees that new members are the lifeblood of any political motion. Younger women and men throughout the nation search a motion to present voice to their aspirations. It’s our obligation to supply them with a platform, as we have now finished for generations previous.
You’ll have to guarantee the right printing and distribution of kinds for each ward and village. You’ll have to determine and assign Congress leaders and workplace bearers, the duty of going home to accommodate, to enrol members in a clear style. You need to make sure the clear delineation of the tasks of those people on the state, district, block, ward and village degree. It is a very important accountability that you’re entrusted with.
Coaching programmes for our staff are subsequently an absolute necessity. You could have obtained a round from the AICC with regard to the organisation of such programmes at each degree. I need to emphasise that you need to take it on precedence. The combat to defend our democracy, our Structure and the Congress Get together’s ideology begins with being totally ready to determine and counter false propaganda.
We should combat the diabolical marketing campaign of BJP/RSS ideologically. We should achieve this with conviction and expose their lies earlier than the individuals if we’re to win this battle. The AICC releases essential and detailed statements virtually each day on points dealing with the nation. However it’s my expertise that they don’t percolate right down to our grass root cadres on the block and district degree. There are coverage points on which I discover a lack of readability and cohesion even amongst our state-level leaders.
You need to prepare our staff to tackle the unceasing onslaught of malicious disinformation campaigns on the behest of the BJP/RSS. And you have to prepare our individuals to combat it whereas upholding and projecting the core Congress ideology.
Our personal historical past bears witness to the truth that if an organisation is to succeed in opposition to injustice and inequality, whether it is to successfully champion the rights of the marginalised, it should change into a widespread agitation right down to the grassroots. The Modi Authorities has sought to erode our establishments so it might evade accountability. It has sought to undermine the core values of our Structure so it could maintain itself to a decrease normal. It has questioned the very fundamentals of our democracy.
We should redouble our combat for individuals who are the victims of this authorities’s worst excesses: our farmers and farm labourers, our youth preventing for jobs and alternatives, small and medium scale companies, our brothers, our sisters with explicit concentrate on the disadvantaged.
To make this promise actually significant, we should additionally make our organisation extra consultant of this cross-section of society.
5 states are going to election within the coming months. Congress occasion staff and leaders in these states are gearing as much as tackle these battles. Our marketing campaign have to be based upon concrete insurance policies and programmes emanating from widespread discussions with all sections of society.
Lastly, I wish to re-emphasise the paramount want for self-discipline and unity. What ought to matter to each one in every of us is the strengthening of the organisation. This should override private ambitions. On this lies each collective and particular person success.
