The District Congress Committee presidents in Tamil Nadu Congress Committee, who met with the TNCC president Okay.S. Alagiri to debate preparations within the lead-up to the Lok Sabha elections in 2024, have reportedly pushed the State management to distribute Lok Sabha tickets to ‘new faces’ as an alternative of these from ‘well-known Congress families’ right here in Chennai on Monday.
A senior chief mentioned the district presidents spoke about how there’s one part that’s all the time carrying the burden of working throughout the ‘organisation’ and one other part that all the time appears to get elected to State Assembly or the parliament.
“The DCC president were vociferous in voicing their opinion…same old people from well-known Congress families should be overlooked and those who have worked hard in the last 5 years should be given a seat to contest,” mentioned the chief. Many mentioned that parliamentary seats must be distributed in a rotational method.
The social gathering chief contended the district presidents have applied a lot of the duties and applications as anticipated by the AICC and they’re of the view that those that have already been MPs ought to change into part of the Organisation and work in direction of strengthening it.
A DCC president claimed that extra 60% of the sales space committees have been crammed versus simply barely 5% of the sales space committees crammed earlier than the earlier Lok Sabha elections.
Asked to touch upon senior State leaders who’re reportedly vying to change into the State unit president, a celebration supply mentioned, “They are free to go to Congress high command and seek a position. It is just that expressing that wish in public makes them look childish.” So far, sales space stage brokers have been appointed in 15 parliamentary constituencies and the method would proceed within the coming weeks.
