Speaking on the occasion, Harish Chaudhary asked the delegates to ponder over the fact that even though the people of Chandigarh supported the Congress during the last Municipal Corporation election and wanted the party to win, why could it not secure enough seats to claim the post of the Mayor. Stating that the Congress party has a rich legacy and has built this country brick by brick after independence, he stressed upon the need to propagate the ideology of the Congress among the general masses and involve them in the implementation of the party's programs and policies. He also urged the delegates to have at least one general body meeting of the party in a year at State and District level in order to evaluate their performance.
Pawan Bansal stressed upon the need to infuse new talent in the party, especially from among the youth and deprived sections of the society. He stated that the primary aim and objective of the Congress has never been to grab power but to bring about social and economic transformation in the lives of the people, especially those at the lower rung of the society.
Ajay Shukla, senior journalist, recalled the glorious history of the freedom struggle, which was fought under the leadership of the Congress party. He stated that the Congress party worked to unite various independent states in British India to establish a secular, socialist and democratic India, Shukla added.
