MUMBAI: Seeking to reclaim the lost glory of the Congress in Maharashtra, Rahul Gandhi’s two-day visit to the state from Friday could be seen as a prelude to a change in the party organisation and government.
Urging the partymen to work for the people, Rahul took the opportunity to shake the Congress leaders and ministers out of their slumber. With the Congress already having ministers tainted in various scams, Rahul has put the onus on accountability and transparency.Pointing out that party always stood for transparency, he said that it was the Congress which had brought the Right to Information Act.
He pointed out that the states ruled by the BJP were riddled with corruption. Rahul said that he would actively work to strengthen the party in the state and regularly tour the state.
