BENGALURU: Unhappy with the lack of progress in the mass contact programme of the Congress, AICC general secretary and state in-charge K C Venugopal will hold a series of meetings on Friday. The ‘Mane Manege Congress’ programme where Congress workers would go door-to-door to interact with people and also inform them about the programmes of the government was launched with much fanfare by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Venugopal on September 23 .

But the programme has since lost steam. Congress sources said Venugopal is not happy about the lack of interest shown by legislators and their coordination with workers to make the programme a success. Booth-level committees were also supposed to play a crucial role in the campaign, but the process of formation of these committees has not even been completed yet.

The legislators are said to have blamed the succession of holidays in the wake of Dasara for the delay in starting their campaign. Venugopal has scheduled a meeting on Friday afternoon to review the progress and is likely to take all those involved to task over their lackadaisical approach. Venugopal will also meet office-bearers and heads of various cells like women’s cell, minorities, SC/ST, OBC, youth cell to discuss poll strategy.
