Rahul to meet Cong workers at AICC headquarters from today

Reviving the old party tradition, Congress president Rahul Gandhi will interact with delegations of party leaders and workers from across the country from today at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters at Akbar Road here.

The media, however, will not be allowed to be present during these interactions.

Easy accessibility of the Congress president has been an issue of debate in the past.

The Congress president’s office at the AICC headquarters has, for several years, remained closed. It was opened once in a while when former party chief Sonia Gandhi came to attend the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting or an important event like the party’s foundation day.

The office has recently been cleaned up and refurbished for Rahul Gandhi to sit there.

In the past, former Congress presidents like Indira Gandhi used to meet the party workers at a “janta durbar” there. PTI
