PCC President Sarat Patnaik affirmed Congress’ commitment to bring about positive change in Odisha’s political landscape. The party aims to address issues related to the state’s governance and combat corruption, echoing their determination to offer an alternative to the incumbent 23-year-long BJD Government.
Throughout the day, the Political Affairs Committee and Executive Committee engaged in exhaustive discussions. The meeting resulted in unanimous acceptance of six proposals, forming the foundation of Congress’ approach for the 2024 Odisha elections. The party intends to focus on welfare-oriented policies and progress for the people.
Regarding internal matters, PCC President Sarat Patnaik expressed confidence in the unity of the Odisha Congress, emphasizing that all members are dedicated to the party’s common goals. When questioned about the suspension of MLA Moquim and Former MLA Chiranjib Biswal, Patnaik clarified that the executive committee meeting was not the appropriate forum for such discussions. Instead, the meeting centered on critical issues like corruption, unemployment, price-rise, chit fund scams, student union elections, and the performance of the current state government.
AICC General Secretary and Odisha Congress In-Charge, A. Chella Kumar, raised concerns about the state’s governance system, stating that it seemed to be heavily influenced by bureaucracy. He expressed reservations about certain bureaucrats wielding undue power, potentially impacting governance and democracy. Despite being in power for an extended period, the BJD-led government’s prioritization of bureaucrats has raised concerns.
As the executive meeting concluded, the Odisha Congress continues its journey with determination to champion the cause of the people. With a focus on unity and determination, Congress leaders have set the stage for a comprehensive electoral campaign, offering a viable alternative for the future of Odisha. As the state awaits the unfolding of the political landscape, the Odisha Congress seeks to present a compelling vision for progress and development.
