Congress CEC Meeting to finalise candidates on 17 Oct


The Congress Central Election Committee (CEC) is scheduled to convene on 17 October to deliberate on the selection of candidates for the upcoming Rajasthan Assembly elections, slated to take place on 25 November. The party is yet to release its list of candidates while the opposition in the state- Bharatiya Janata Party has released its first list fielding as many as 7 MPs in the assembly polls.
Congress State President Govind Singh Dotasra, while addressing the media after the meeting of the State Congress War Room, said, “Congress will start its campaign ‘Kaam Kiya Dil se, Congress Sarkar Phir se’ from 16 October. We will begin it from the centre’s broken promise on ERCP (Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project)… We will start in 12 districts from 16 October… We will do meetings in every district where at least one lakh people will come.”
According to Dotasra, the party will keep the Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project (ERCP) on its priority list and start campaigning from Baran district and cover 12 districts of eastern Rajasthan where the canal is proposed for meeting drinking and irrigation water for the people.
