Congress chief convenes meeting of newly-constituted CWC on Sep 16 in Hyderabad

New Delhi: The Congress on Monday announced that party president Mallikarjun Kharge has convened a meeting of the newly-constituted CWC on September 16 in Hyderabad which will be followed by a rally the next day.
Addressing a press conference at the All India Congress Committee headquarters here, Congress general secretary organisation K C Venugopal said that on September 17, an extended Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting will be held and it will include all Pradesh Congress Committee chiefs.
Venugopal said that on September 17 evening, which is celebrated as Telangana National Integration Day, the party will hold a “mega rally” near Hyderabad, where it will announce five guarantees for Telangana, which is scheduled to go to polls late this year.
After the rally, the Congress president will flag off the cavalcade for all CWC members, invitees, PCC Chiefs and CLP Leaders to visit each of the 119 Assembly constituencies of Telangana, Venugopal said.
Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh was also present at the press conference.
On September 18, apart from sitting MPs, all leaders will hold a ‘Karyakarta meeting’ and conduct door-to-door distribution of the “charge sheet” against the BRS government in the morning, he said.
“After lunch, they will interact with local influencers. The event will culminate with a march to a prominent statue of Mahatma Gandhi, BR Ambedkar or Komaram Bheem in the constituency,” he said.
In a post on X, Venugopal said, “We are geared up for every fight! Make no mistake, the Congress is unstoppable!” The meeting will be held under the leadership of Kharge and in the presence of Congress parliamentary party chairperson Sonia Gandhi and former party chief Rahul Gandhi. Kharge had on August 20 reconstituted the CWC, retaining the old guard, giving space to the young and including prominent G23 group leaders such as Shashi Tharoor and Anand Sharma, in the 84-member top decision-making body of the party.
The all-important CWC, formed 10 months after Kharge took charge, has 39 regular members, 32 permanent invitees and 13 special invitees. These include 15 women and several new faces such as Sachin Pilot and Gourav Gogoi who are among the regular members.
