"At times of crisis in Bengal, Congress has been supportive to its people and people also extended their support to the party. And I am quite sure that in the coming days, Congress will be the solution to the problems of the people of West Bengal," said Dhanani, who was appointed secretary by Rahul Gandhi.

The Congress MLA from Gujarat held a meeting with party office-bearers, district unit chiefs, frontal organisation heads, MPs, MLAs and some other senior leaders this morning.

On the possibility of alliance between Congress and the CPI(M) in the upcoming assembly elections in the state, Dhanani said the party's high command was looking into the matter and it would soon come out with a decision.

"The party high command decides on its policies for elections and our committee under AK Antony will soon come out with its decision on it (probable alliance between CPI(M) and Congress)," he stated.

According to him, the people of the state will deliver their "decision" about the ruling Trinamool Congress government in the assembly elections.

Meanwhile, in his meeting with leaders, Dhanani stressed on the need to bring in more youths in Congress and strengthen the organisation in West Bengal, a party leader who was present in the meeting said.
