Stung by Congress party’s dismal showing in the Lok Sabha 2019 polls where it could not even win a single seat out of 25 Lok Sabha seats , Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president and Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot has now asked party leaders and workers to start a mass contact programme across the state to connect with the people after the drubbing it received in the Lok Sabha polls.
Pilot said the Congress accepted defeat in the general elections but it was not the first or the last election.
We accept the defeat and the decision of voters humbly. I have asked the PCC members to start a mass contact programme in cities, towns, villages and hamlets across the country with immediate effect for connecting people with the Congress party,” Pilot told reporters here.
“This was not the first and the last election. We will again go among the masses and win people’s heart. Congress is ruling the state and our government will fulfil all the expectations of people,” the deputy chief minister said after the party’s executive committee meeting .
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan Congress executive committee passed a resolution, saying the party should not accept the resignation of its president Rahul Gandhi over the Lok Sabha debacle.
“We all have requested the party president to continue leading us. He is authorised to do whatever changes he wants to do in the organisation,” he said.
