Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president, D.K. Shivakumarhas informed that the party is to launch a mobile application soon and also will constitute a people's representatives committee at all booths to fight against the formidable BJP's election machinery. Addressing the Udupi district party workers' meet on Sunday, President said that he wanted to have formidable election machinery at all booths.
"We can fight the BJP only if we have formidable election machinery. Therefore, we will soon form - Praja Pratinidhi - committees at all villages and booth levels," he said. Besides constituting a committee, the party will also launch a mobile application to keep youngsters in recent update about party programmes. "Both initiatives will certainly help youngsters to take reigns at local level and have a hold over local narratives too," Shivakumar said. He highlighted the need for more focus in Uttara Kannada, Udupi and Kodagu districts.
"At present we do not have enough MLAs here and these have slowly become strongholds of BJP and the Congress certainly needs to build its base in those places, where we have lost while we need to restrengthen ourselves where we have considerable presence in these districts," Shivakumar said. About the upcoming gram panchayat elections, the KPCC president expressed his views to give an opportunity for new faces, educated people and women to contest in these elections.
