Bhubaneswar: Following the shocking and disheartening results across the country including Odisha and in the wake of the recent meeting of Congress Working Committee (CWC), Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) is also going to review its alarming outcome on May 23.
This was not only informed by PCC president Niranjan Patnaik to media today but was also informed by PCC working president Pradip Majhi.
Talking to media today, the senior Congress leader and Nabarangpur MP candidate said, “There are several reasons behind our party’s drubbing. This is to be reviewed on May 30 at our Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) office. AICC Odisha-in-charge Jitendra Singh and PCC Niranjan Patnaik will hold discussions and find out the faults and decide on the future course of action.”
On his home turf Nabarangpur where he too lost the election, Majhi stated, “Here in our Lok Sabha seat we were very much hopeful. We had hoped that our three party MLA candidates and myself could win even at the worst case. Some of our voters perhaps fell into allurement and other parties could be able to snatch our votes despite our fight for the people’s cause. The outcome was our defeat.”
“The same fate of Congress is witnessed across the country. The way Congress was expected to fight the election has perhaps failed. There have been certain internal problems also,” he mentioned.
As per PCC sources, AICC Odisha-in-charge Jitendra Singh is coming Odisha on May 29. He will go to Ganjam to meet the bereft family as the Aska Congress MLA candidate Manoj Jena has been murdered. On May 30, PCC will have a meeting at 10 am where the CLP (Congress Legislature Party) leader will be elected.
At 11 am, Singh along with AICC co-in-charge of Odisha T.S. Singhdeo will be holding talks with all party MLA and MP candidates. After 3 pm, they will be meeting other senior Congressmen, PCC members, etc before going back.
