Glimpses of decisions taken by Kharge's team in Raipur session, know why CWC election was easy this time

In the beginning of this year, the national convention of the Congress was held in Raipur, in which the party took many decisions, the glimpse of which is clearly seen in the list of the working committee of the Congress. The number of regular members in the CWC has also been doubled. This number has now increased from 23 to 39.

In February this year, the 85th session of the Congress was held in Raipur, in which proposals were brought to amend some of the rules already in force in the organization. One of these proposals was the election of members of the Congress Working Committee. However, the steering committee rejected this proposal and gave the Congress President the right to choose the members of the Congress Working Committee, in which it was decided that the representation of youth, Dalits, women, minorities, OBCs and tribals in the highest policy-making body of the Congress to be ensured.

Now after 5 months, today i.e. on Sunday, Mallikarjun Kharge has announced 39 regular members, 18 permanent invitees, 14 incharges, 9 special invitees and 4 ex-officio members for the Congress Working Committee. Let us know what is the effect of Raipur session on this new team of Mallikarjun Kharge?

Long list of youth in Congress Working Committee

According to the resolution passed in the Raipur session, the Congress President has prepared a long list of youths in the Congress Working Committee, in which Bhanwar Jitendra Singh, Randeep Surjewala, Sachin Pilot, Gaurav Gogoi, Kamleshwar Patel, Manish Tiwari, Deepender Singh Hooda, Manickam Tagore, Kanhaiya Kumar, Sachin Rao, Devender Yadav and Manish Chatrath are included.

Special attention given to women-tribals

The women include senior party leaders Ambika Soni, Meira Kumar, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Kumari Selja, Deepa Das Munshi, Pratibha Singh, Minakshi Natarajan, tribal leaders Phulo Devi Netam, Rajni Patel, Yashomati Thakur as well as new emerging women Supriya Shrinate, Praniti Shinde and Alka Lamba have also been given place.

Dalit-OBC leaders got place in CWC

The Congress Working Committee includes Tariq Anwar, AK Antony, Salman Khurshid, GA Mir, Naseer Hussain, Tariq Hameed Karra, Sukhwinder Randhawa from the minority community and Netra D'Souza, a special invitee from the minority community. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has given place to prominent Dalit leaders like Meera Kumar, Mukul Wasnik, Charanjit Singh Channi, Kumari Selja, Veerappa Moily, K Raju, Chandrakant Handore, Praniti Shinde in the Congress Working Committee.

Apart from this, leaders belonging to OBC community like former Gujarat Congress President Jagdish Thakor, Deepak Babaria, Tamradhwaj Sahu, Rajni Patel, Sachin Rao have also been given place. However, under the formula implemented in the Raipur session, only Gaykhingam, a tribal leader from Manipur, has got a place in the Congress Working Committee, while Phulo Devi Netam, who comes from the same community, has been nominated as a permanent invitee in the CWC.

It was easy for Kharge to form the working committee

This time the formation of the Congress Working Committee was not much difficult for the Congress President. One reason for this is that the number of members in the working committee has been almost doubled. When the CWC was dissolved before the formation of the Steering Committee, the number of its regular members was only 23, whereas now it has increased to 39.

Some disgruntled leaders have left the party, so it was relatively easy for Mallikarjun Kharge to keep the old leaders in the new working committee and add new leaders. According to the new rules added in the Raipur session, the inclusion of leaders of every class and region in the working committee is indicating the restoration of confidence at a new level within the Congress organization.
