Attributing the decline of the Congress in Tamil Nadu to the same persons occupying the posts in the party from the grass roots to the top level, All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Mukul Wasnik, who is in charge of the party’s Tamil Nadu affairs, hinted at sweeping changes at all levels.

Mukul Wasnik who was the special guest at a meeting suggested that the party development should come from the grassroots levels and advocated installation of village level committees.

The party leadership wanted all the members to give their best for party’s development, he said and promised that posts would come naturally to those who work hard.

“There is no improvement in the party. This is because, the office bearers at the taluk level, district level and state level were not changed since 2002. Steps would be initiated to revamp the party”, said Mukul Wasnik.

“How many of you have taken efforts to make the public aware of the Union government’s schemes, including Public Distributing System (PDS) through which 32 crore people get benefits, and 82 crore will benefited through the Food Security Act”, he asked.

However, most of the Central government schemes are mistook by the people as that of the State government’s programme.

“It is your duty to make the people know about the Central government’s schemes”, he stressed.

Mukul Wasnik appealed to the party members to share their ideas for developing the party and suggested the party members to discuss with the other functionaries and send letters within 15 days.

TNCC president BS Gnanadesikan presided over the meeting. AICC secretaries K Thirunavukkarasasr, Chinna Reddy, C D Satheesan, Assembly floor leader Gopinath, former union minister Mani Shankar Aiyar and others were present.
