AICC observers try and revive the party’s political fortunes in Odisha

Bhubaneswar:12/8/17: Amid talks of a leadership change in the Odisha unit of the Congress, a three-member team of observers appointed by the All India Congress Committee (AICC) chief Sonia Gandhi, on Saturday met district presidents to try and revive the party’s political fortunes in the state.

The observers are taking stock of the political situation as the state unit of the Congress is grappling with infighting, a perennial problem, even as Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Prasad Harichandan continues to face opposition from party legislators.

The team, comprising of Congress MPs Gaurav Gogoi and Tamrdhwaj Sahu and former Union Minister Jitendra Singh, met the presidents of the District Congress Committees (DCC) and the heads of several frontal units, who expressed their opinion on the party’s affairs.

The team was joined by AICC General Secretary and Odisha in-charge B.K. Hariprasad.

The Congress has a total of 33 organisational districts in the state.
