Bhopal, Nov 9 (UNI) Notwithstanding the murmur of protest over ticket allotment, the Congres is making a united effort to stage a come back in Madhya Pradesh by routing BJP, PCC president Suresh Pachouri said today.
''The so-called dissidents and rebels would be persuaded to work in the party's interest and we are hopeful of mustering a clear majority by captalising on the resentment against the BJP government,'' Mr Pachouri told UNI.
''There is no crisis in the party because of the presence of dissidents and the party was confident of its victory in the assembly elections. Resentment over ticket allotment is quite natural but we would manage it,'' he said while appealing the rebels to return to the partyfold and support the party nominees.
Ruling out the possibility of a hung assembly, Mr Pachouri claimed the Congress would bag clear majority.
The popularity of BJP was at its low ebb with many ministers embroiled in corruption cases and peoples' problems remaining unattended, said Mr Pachouri.
There is no tradition in the Congress to project any legislative party leader. The elected representatives elect their leader with party's approval after the election, Mr Pachouri said in reference that any chief ministerial candidate was not being projected.
