During the two weeklong 'Jan Jagran Abhiyan', all senior office-bearers of state, district, block committees, all frontal organisations, departments and cells will undertake a long 'Pad Yatra' to touch each polling booth. No public meeting, but small group meetings will be held to interact with the common people.
The party has decided that for the successful implementation of the mass awareness/contact programme, the state Congress will set up control rooms in each state and state-level trainers will be given 2-3 days training in the AICC. They will further train designated people at the district and booth level.
