The self-appraisal system is for state Congress leaders to find out whether a Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) supremo should continue or not in the office.
"The idea is to fix accountability and make the organisation more responsive," informed a senior Congress leader.
Rahul's self-appraisal system is on the lines of corporate style self-evaluation and assessment of one's worthiness and capabilities.
What is self-appraisal all about?
In the appraisal form each and every PCC chief have to inform their strategy for the next three months to strengthen the organisation from the grass-roots level.
They have to also declare the kind of commitment they holds towards the party.
The Congress leaders have to provide a detail account about their strategy to fight assembly and parliamentary elections and by-elections in their states.
A questionnaire will be given to the leaders to fill it up.
"They also have to talk about prevailing political and economic situation in their respective states and problems faced by them in their functioning in which they could refer to infighting and also point out to trouble-makers," informed a senior Congress leaders.
But, will Rahul's latest step help Congress to better their prospect for next General Elections, slated in few months from now?
