PUDUCHERRY: All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary in charge of Puducherry, Chinna Reddy, on Sunday exhorted party cadre to expose the failures of the All India NR Congress government and work towards capturing power in 2016.
Addressing media persons during a membership drive in the party office where he released the Tamil translation of the book ‘U-Turn BJP Sarkar - Before and After Elections’, Reddy pointed out that elections to the legislative assembly was 15 months away and hence party cadre should work hard to capture power.
The AICC secretary said he had fixed a target of enrolling 44,250 members while Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) had assured to rope in 1.25 lakh new members. The membership drive would end by December and organizational elections would be taken up in January, he added.
Charging the Rangasamy government with not fulfilling poll promises, Reddy said the issue would be taken to the masses by the party cadre. Further, the Congress leader said Prime Minister Modi had failed to keep his promise of bringing back black money from Swiss banks and this only indicated the ‘malicious‘ campaign made by the BJP against the Congress.
He also faulted the Modi government for taking credit for schemes like Aadhar and MNREGA, which were launched by the Congress government.
