New Delhi, Oct 10 (UNI) In what is seen as a preparedness for a possible mid-term poll, the Congress has decided to arm its workers country-wide with ''bullet-points and talking points'' to explain to the people the party's achievements and its perceptions on different national issues.
This was the idea of AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, who asked the newly-appointed publicity committee to prepare campaign points in capsule form for effective dissemination to the public through the party workers.
The committee, headed by former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh, met at the AICC headquarters today and decided to prepare documents on Sethusamudram project, 60 years of progress of Independent India, the achievements of the UPA government, and the comparative analysis of achievements made in the last three years and those of the NDA in the last three years of its rule.
''Mr Gandhi wanted the committee to cull out bullet-points and talking points from the documents, instead of burdening the workers with the task of taking out fine points from them,'' Mr Singh told mediapersons after the meeting.
The documents, which are meant to be used as a campaign material for the party, would be available on the official website of the AICC.
''It was a good meeting. All members provided their inputs on how best and how fast we can respond to issues and put forward Congress' points of view,'' Mr Singh said.
He said the committee would soon come out with documents on price rise and Sachar Committee recommendations on backwards of the Muslim community.
