Delhi Congress State Chief Sheila Dikshit dissolves all 280 block committees; plans revamp ahead of Delhi Polls

Sheila Dixit

Delhi Congress Chief Sheila Dikshit on Friday dissolved all 280 block Congress committees with immediate effect. In the meantime, Working President of Delhi and Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee have resigned from their posts.

While AICC Secretaries Virender Rathore, Anil Choudhury, Rajesh Dharmani and Foreign Cell Secretary Virender Vashist resigned today.

The move comes months ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls which are slated for next year.

Earlier in the day, DPCC Chief Sheila Dikshit met Rahul Gandhi along with the six other defeated Congress candidates Ajay Maken, Mahabal Mishra, J.P. Agarwal, Rajesh Lilothia and Arvinder Singh Lovely as well as P.C. Chacko, the Congress in-charge of Delhi.

The meeting that lasted for over more than an hour also chart out plans for the Assembly elections due in Delhi early next year.

In the recently held national polls, Congress faced a humiliating defeat in Delhi too and lost all 7 Lok Sabha Seats.

Prior to this, Congress had dissolved all the district committees of the party of Uttar Pradesh. While the All India Congress Committee (AICC) also dissolved the present committee of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC). However, the party has decided to retain the president and the working president of the state.

The dissolution of all Committee in a different state is seen as Congress efforts to revive the party by making organizational changes. The question of the revival of the Congress party tops at TV News debates and the dissolution of the committee at different levels can be seen on the same directions.
