New Delhi : The Delhi Congress will kick start its preparation for the Assembly polls scheduled early next year by holding booth level meetings in each of the 70 constituencies from the next week, even as the new city head of the party is yet to be named.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) in-charge of Delhi Congress P C Chacko met with district presidents and the media team on Friday and discussed with them preparations for the coming Assembly elections in the city.
"I met the district presidents, the media team and the spokesperson to discuss plans and allotted them work. The elections are round the corner and we cannot afford to wait any longer for the new president and work should not suffer," Chacko said.
A decision about the appointment of the new president of the Delhi Congress is pending with party's national president Sonia Gandhi. The post of the Delhi Congress president fell vacant after the demise of incumbent Sheila Dikshit in July.
Gandhi in the last one month held several rounds of meetings with senior leaders of the Delhi Congress to choose an eligible candidate to head the party in the city. Chacko said he will meet the Congress president in the next few days. I expect that the name of the Delhi Congress president could be announced soon, he added.
