Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Thursday addressed a meeting of senior party leaders and discussed the strategy to counter the BJP-led central government on "economic or social" issues concerning the country. Mrs Gandhi, who took over the party months after its crushing defeat in the national election, stressed on connecting with people directly as, she said, "it is not enough to be active and aggressive on social media".
"We must stand up fearlessly to fight on the streets, fight in villages, towns and cities. We must have a concrete agitational agenda on issues of pressing concern to the people--whether they be economic or social. It is not enough to be active and aggressive on social media even though that too is needed and we need to do that better. Far more important is to go to the people directly," she was quoted by news agency ANI as saying.
The meeting was attended by Congress general secretaries, state unit chiefs and Congress legislature party leaders.
