First meeting of the Congress Task Force for 2024 under the new party leader
Under the leadership of the new party leader Mallikarjun Kharge, the Congress task force meeting on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections is currently in session in New Delhi’s 15 GRG Congress War Room.
After Kharge assumed office as President of Congress, this is the Task Force’s first gathering.
P Chidambaram, Mukul Wasnik, Jairam Ramesh, KC Venugopal, Ajay Maken, Randeep Surjewala, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and Sunil Kanugolu were among the task force members who showed up at the 15 GRG Congress War Room for the meeting.
For the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress has established a “Task Force 2024.”
Specific tasks pertaining to organisation, media and communications, outreach, finances, and election management will be given to each Task Force member. They will have assigned teams that will be informed later.
In the general elections of 2019, Narendra Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party stormed back into power. The party increased its 2014 total of 282 seats to 303 in the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Indian parliament.
With 53 seats, the Indian National Congress (INC) and its allies, who only won 44 seats in 2014, put up a better fight in 2019 but fell short of making any significant gains. Earlier attempts at opposition unity by politicians like Sharad Pawar, Mamata Banerjee, and K Chandrashekhar Rao of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (now known as the Bharat Rashtra Samithi) failed.
The BJP-led NDA government has held the centre since 2014 and is currently in its second term under Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The party is certain that it would once again win the Lok Sabha election.
In order to get ready for the impending 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP conducted a meeting on Sunday at its Delhi headquarters under the direction of General Secretary BL Santosh.
The party assessed the progress of all active programmes as well as the progress of central government-run projects around the country during the meeting, according to sources.
The next Delhi Municipal Corporation election, which is scheduled to take place on December 4, is another contest the Congress is preparing for.
For the Delhi civic council elections, the Congress Party released a list of 250 candidates on Sunday.
Notably, the MCD polls’ results will be tallied on December 7.
