Congress Working Committee (CWC) member and Rajya Sabha MP Birender Singh is the co-chairman of coordination committee. Besides, Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, former Union Minister and Rajya Sabha MP Kumari Sailja, state unit president Ashok Tanwar, state Power Minister Captain Ajay Singh Yadav and party leader Ramprakash are also members of co-ordination committee.
It’s being said that a few more leaders might be inducted in the co-ordination committee. According to Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar, there is no groupism in the party but the way leaders are speaking is wrong. If they had any problem they could have raised the issues on the party platform, said Tanwar.
Assembly elections are slated to be held in October in the state. In order to boost morale of the party workers, district-level meetings have been organized from June 5-28.
According to the state unit chief, Shakeel Ahmad’s nod to hold the co-ordination committee meeting has already been sought. During the meeting, apart from holding talks on removing differences between the leaders, strategy will also be devised on Congress’ win in the upcoming Assembly polls.
Tanwar has also assured that all senior leaders of the party will share the same dais after co-ordination committee meeting. He also denied the allegations that while appointing district observers, party workers of Birender Singh and Kumari Selja groups were overlooked.
He also made it clear that the upcoming polls would be contested under Congress leadership. Hooda has been the Chief Minister for the last 10 years and the party will gain from his experience, added the state Congress chief.
