GUWAHATI, July 7 � The executive committee of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) in its meeting, held here on July 2, expressed serious concern over the prevailing political situation in the State, attributing it to the differences in opinion within the party. Significantly, it observed that the present political development has stopped the progress of the State.
According to a press release issued by APCC media department general secretary Akshay Rajkhowa, the executive committee observed that as a result of the present political situation, uncertainty prevails in every part of the administration. It has made the government inoperative and demoralised the party workers, the executive committee observed.
The APCC executive committee in its meeting observed that following the party�s debacle in the latest Lok Sabha elections, it is the prime duty of the party workers to go to the people, to revive the party and to win back the confidence of the people.
The meeting unanimously authorised APCC president Bhubaneswar Kalita to take steps by coordinating with the All India Congress Committee (AICC) and Chief Minister of the State to settle the present impasse without any further loss of time.
It urged AICC president Sonia Gandhi and its vice president Rahul Gandhi to intervene into the matter and settle it immediately, so that the State Government starts functioning in a war-footing manner and provides good governance to the people.
It also made an appeal to all party members to unite and uphold the ideology, principles and policies of the Congress, said the press release.
