New Delhi: The five-member Congress Committee on Tuesday submitted a preliminary report to interim president Sonia Gandhi giving her assessment of the party’s performance in the recently concluded assembly elections.
According to sources, the committee has made recommendations and suggestions for the reconstruction of the Congress party in Assam, Kerala, West Bengal and Puducherry, where it has faced defeat.
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan heads the committee while Manish Tewari, Vincent Pala, Salman Khurshid and S Jothimani are its members.
According to sources, the committee has submitted reports on the party’s performance in Kerala, Assam and Puducherry and said evaluation is underway for West Bengal.
The report of the committee is important as it has been constituted after discussion in the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting.
Sonia Gandhi had said during the CWC meeting last month that the group would look into every aspect of the recent election turnaround and come back with its findings.
“These will give uncomfortable lessons, but if we don’t face reality, if we don’t face the facts, we won’t learn the right lessons,” he said.
The report can be the basis for organizational changes in the party. The Congress has the highest number of MPs in Kerala, but the party did not succeed in changing the Left rule in the state, while there was an anti-incumbency wave in Assam but still the ruling BJP government retained power.
Puducherry lost to the assembly elections due to a pre-poll setback by a senior leader leaving the party.
