Bhagat has task cut out

Ranchi, May 17: Newly appointed state Congress president Sukhdeo Bhagat is treading cautiously to achieve his “set goals”, staying away from fresh initiatives in Delhi to form an alternative government in the state.

Bhagat, who will formally assume new charges tomorrow, is focusing on measures to strengthen the party organisation.

“I believe in collective decisions. First, I need to feel the pulse of my district presidents and office-bearers and also establish direct links with workers at the grassroots level to know about their expectations,” Bhagat told The Telegraph.

However, Bhagat said he was ready to extend all possible supports if the party high command decided to go ahead with the process of government formation in the state.

The JPCC president maintained that his main challenge at the moment was to end internal squabbles.

“This will be possible only if dedicated party workers are honoured and sycophants are shown the door. For this, I need to go to villages to find out where the root of the problems lies. Even Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi will not be happy if we fail to put up an impressive show in days to come,” Bhagat argued.
