The industrial town of Parwanoo in Himachal Pradesh saw the bigwigs of the state Congress share a common stage. The goal was to chalk out a strategy to return to power in the state. After holding a brainstorming session for a good over two hours, they decided to unleash a blitzkreig of political rallies.
The Congress also formed a 12-member committee to fine-tune its poll strategy. The name of former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh and Union Minister Anand Sharma figures in it.
A chargesheet against the Prem Kumar Dhumal government was another weapon the Congress decided to use.
A committee headed by Kangra MLA G.S Bali has prepared this chargesheet.
For the Shimla Municipal Corporation elections slated for May 27.
The party did not name any candidates. But it did announce the setting up of a eight-member committee to finalise the contenders.
One of the attempts of the meeting was to show that the Congress was a united house.
This after party president Sonia Gandhi recently called five senior leaders to New Delhi and asked them to shun groupism. But going by the distance some of the top leaders maintained amongst each other even during the meet, it may a take more than such meetings to end turf wars.
