Congress leaders take bus ride to Surajkund for party session

Congress party graph and their popularity is at lowest levels because of their leadership resorting to liberalized policy issues and paying no heed to social issues with black flags waiting for their welcome has put the party in back foot and their policies to notch fiscal gain in every aspect of life has made the Congress party of riches instead of common man’s party.
In this back drop the Top Congress leaders are meeting on Friday in Haryana’s Surajkund to discuss strategy for better coordination with Government to implement promises.Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and several top congress leaders are attending a day-long strategy session of the party.
Against the backdrop of opposition’s criticism over decision on FDI, hike in diesel and cap on LPG cylinders, Prime Minister is expected to highlight the reasons for these tough decisions.
He is expected to underscore that these decisions were necessary as the country’s economy is facing testing times on account of international situation and slowdown domestically.
Review of its functioning to overcome limitations of coalition government is high on the agenda.
Leaders including Sonia Gandhi and Rahul travelled in the bus. They were accompanied by senior party leaders Ahmed Patel and Ambika Soni.
Ministers including A K Antony, P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Ghulam Nabi Azad and C P Joshi were also in the same bus. Two buses are taking the Congress top brass to Surajkund.
The day-long “dialogue session” is likely to chalk out the strategy ahead. It may also take a view on the issue of alliances in different states.
Party sources said that the dialogue meeting (Samvad Baithak) will virtually set the agenda for the larger brainstorming at Chintan Shivir, which is likely to be organised in January next year.
The dialogue session comes after the public meeting in here on November 4, which saw Sonia and Rahul strongly backing the economic reform measures initiated by the Prime Minister.
The session will discuss three topics – present political situation, economic challenges and status of implementation of 2009 party manifesto.
On a visit to Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh, Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday met common people and heard their local problems.Sonia Gandhi, who was on a two-day visit to her Parliamentary constituency since Wednesday, met more than a thousand people and 37 delegations in the morning.
Later she inaugurated the Smile Train at Simhains hospital in the Rae Bareli city before chairing the meeting of the District Vigilance and Monitoring committee at the Collectorate.
She left for New Delhi after giving proposals for improved sewage and drinking water supply in the constituency.

Take action to free Brang Yung and Lanpai Gam!

Take action to free Brang Yung and Lanpai Gam! No Political Prisoners must be left behind in Burma’s jails!

Civilians in Burma still face torture, harassment and arbitrary arrest by the military-backed government in Burma despite the limited reform process in the country.

Brang Yung and Lanpai Gam are two Kachin farmers who have been detained illegally and tortured brutally by the military-backed government in Burma. They were arrested in June 2012 and charged under Article 17/1 of the Unlawful Association Act. Their trials are still continuing at Myitkyina court in Kachin State.

Brang Yung and Lanpai Gam were living in a refugee camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPS) with their families after fleeing from conflict areas in Northern Burma. They were arrested under suspicion of being soldiers from the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and carrying out different bombing operations near Myitkyina. The KIA is the armed wing of Kachin Independence Organisation, which works for democracy and more autonomy for Kachin people. According to family members, during the interrogations, they were repeatedly beaten, forced to drink water mixed with fuel, burnt and forced to have sexual intercourse with each other.

Please go to the following link to write a letter to British Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire MP asking him to take action to secure the immediate release of Brang Yung, Lanpai Gam and for the release of all of Burma’s remaining political prisoners:

Thank you.
