The Congress on Tuesday announced its Political Affairs group, which includes Rahul Gandhi and two key dissenters, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma, and a Task Force- both key takeaways from its recent brainstorming session in Rajasthan's Udaipur. The political affairs group members would include Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge, Ambika Soni, Digvijaya Singh, KC Venugopal, Jitendra Singh and G-23 leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma. The task force also has eight members, which include P Chidambaram, Mukul Wasnik, Jairam Ramesh, KC Venugopal, Ajay Maken, Priyanka Gandhi, Randeep Surjewala and Sunil Kanugolu. Each member of the task force will be assigned a specific task related to organisation, communication, media, outreach, finance and election management.
The central planning group for coordination of the Bharat Jodo Yatra has nine members, including Digvijaya Singh, Sachin Pilot, Shashi Tharoor, Ravneet Singh Bittu, KJ George, JothiMani, Pradyut Bordoloi, Jitu Patwari and Saleem Ahmed. Prashant Kishore's former associate Sunil Kanugolu has been picked for the party's election management. The Congress said each member of the Task Force would be assigned specific tasks related to organization, communication and media, outreach, finance and election management. Each will have dedicated teams.
