The interaction being organised in Delhi is part of the on-going process of Congress this time to seek feedback from various stake holders and will be followed by another such elaborate exercise with farmers. Gandhi has so far held consultations with representatives of minorities, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, Youth, Women and elected representatives of Panchayats.
Tomorrow's event coincides with the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, whose theme of the upliftment of the common man in the last row has been repeatedly emphasised by Gandhi during these interactions.
While consultations with youths were organised in the city of technocrats Bangalore, his consultations with women representatives was held in Bhopal. A day-long consultation programme with elected Panchayat members was held in Sevagram village named by Mahatma Gandhi in Wardha in Nagpur last Friday.
For consultation with farmers, party leaders are toying with the idea of holding it either in Uttar Pradesh or Haryana but a decision has not been taken as yet. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that Gandhi has had a number of interactions with different sections of populace, their representatives, groups, various leaders and voices that espouse their rights from time to time.
Congress had opened up its manifesto making exercise and launched a website for this. The party held three consultations with different sections in the national capital so far, one each in Bangalore, Bhopal and Nagpur interacting with different stakeholders.
