J&K Youth Congress Committee to be dissolved today
Elections to be held first time in state for new body
9/11/2011 1:45:36 AM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 10: In a swift turn of developments within the Youth wing of ruling Congress in the state, the High command has dissolved the Youth Congress Committee paving way for elections the process of which shall begin from tomorrow. It will be for the first time in J&K that instead of nominating members for the Committee , proper elections would be held across the state by involving booth level presidents in each constituency. Incumbent Youth president is unlikely to contest the elections.
In what can be seen as the opportunity of involving ground level workers and youth cadres associated with the party for a long time, the High command has decided to conduct proper elections at least for the executive committee . The step has been taken following directions from Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi who looks after Youth wing of the party as well to ensure entrusting the responsibility to the youth leaders who have a mass following at the ground level, sources said . The earlier precedence of nominating the people by mere pick and choose method of persons having political clout and influence has been done away with infusing a ray of hope who are waiting for years to be a part of the Youth Committee.
Sources said the party high command had received some complaints lately of all not being well in terms of functioning of the youth committee and also disgruntlement at various levels on some accounts prevalent within the youth wing. Though on the directions of those in the youth wing at helm in Delhi over 10 general secretaries were named but the criteria adopted for 'selecting' the youth for these posts was allegedly not transparent, sources further said adding that this added to the urgency of holding elections for the new body. The Youth committee would be formally dissolved tomorrow which will pave way for commencement of the membership drive. The process would start in presence of senior party leader Sachin Nayak, who will the election commissioner for constituting new body for J&K Youth Congress. Nayak is camping is Kashmir for the last few days.
However, an interesting development related to the polls for Youth Congress in J&K is that incumbent president Shoaib Lone is unlikely to contest the polls. Sources attribute this to the fact that Lone has not been able garner much support base at any level, which is required badly as it will be democratically held election where he might have to face strong contendors. Apart from Lone, sources say that majority of the members in the executive Youth body whom Lone had 'picked up' rather chosen to be on board also might not contest elections. The membership drive would continue at least for four weeks following which the booth level presidents would choose new state president and other functionaries.
