<p>At a gathering of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), he spoke to party leaders and raised the issue of conducting a nationwide caste census once more in order to ensure social justice and rights for Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), and Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in accordance with their population. He noted that the BJP is silent on this issue.</p>
<p>He said that in order to achieve social justice for them and a fair share in welfare programs, socio-economic statistics on the state of society’s weaker groups must be collected.</p>
<p>The Congress president said that if the party won the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, it will put women’s reservations into effect in both the Lok Sabha and state legislatures.</p>
<p>He urged party officials to speed up efforts to draw attention to the government’s shortcomings but said that they also needed to quickly combat the “false propaganda” of the BJP, which is now in power, as assaults and “falsehood” will intensify as elections get closer.</p>
<p>In addition, Kharge emphasized the necessity for a successful plan for the upcoming November 7–30 assembly elections in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, and Mizoram.</p>
<p>“It is important that the party works with meticulous coordination, complete discipline, and unity as we approach the upcoming assembly elections and general elections,” he stated during the gathering.</p>
<p>Our country is now dealing with inflation, unemployment, and the government’s refusal to put the Old Pension Scheme into effect. The Congress leader said that the stability of democracy was under danger due to the governing party’s divisive tactics and abuse of autonomous bodies.</p>
<p>“The prime minister’s absence from Manipur contrasts sharply with his regular trips to the states that are holding elections. He would only intensify his bogus, fabricated assaults on the Congress party in the coming days. We must refute these myths and construct our own counter-narrative, he said.</p>
<p>Additionally, he said that the party must work to form a government in 2024 that would solve the serious issues confronting the nation and provide for the marginalized, young people, women, farmers, and workers.</p>
<p>We must simultaneously handle urgent concerns like inflation and unemployment while keeping attentive to the opinions of the people, he remarked.</p>
<p>“We must spread the good work done by state governments headed by Congress and previous Congress administrations. We can motivate the people to have trust in our abilities and create a better future by showcasing these successes, he added.</p>
<p>Rahul Gandhi, a former party chairman, said on his WhatsApp channel on the CWC meeting at the party headquarters: “The focus of our meetings has been the Congress party’s strategy for the forthcoming state elections, as well as the larger national issues, like the caste census.”</p>
<p>According to Kharge, the party resolved at the first CWC meeting on September 16 in Hyderabad to rid the nation of polarizing and divisive politics, strengthen the forces of social equity and justice, and give the populace a Union Government that is responsible, responsive, sensitive, transparent, and accountable.</p>
<p>He claimed that the government introduced the women’s reservation bill during the recently ended five-day special session of Parliament without consulting the opposition parties.</p>
<p>He bemoaned the government’s failure to interact with the opposition, as it has in the past, even on such a significant occasion.</p>
<p>The special session, he said, “was converted into another event for the government, best known for its distraction and diversionary tactics, barring the passage of the women’s reservation bill.”</p>
<p>He claimed that the bill, which reserves a third of the seats in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies for women, has the full support of the Congress party and all other significant political parties in India.</p>
<p>According to Kharge, “We have consistently expressed our strong support for increased female participation in politics.”</p>
<p>He said that the nation is still perplexed as to why the law was not put into effect right once and why OBC women were not included in its purview.</p>
<p>Kharge questioned why the census and delimitation clauses were included to further complicate the women’s reservation and expressed uncertainty as to when it will become a reality.</p>
<p>Therefore, it appears that the bill was only introduced for marketing and vote-bank politics, with no intention of being quickly put into effect, the man said.</p>
<p>When we come to power in 2024, the Congress leader argued, “It is imperative that we take these concerns to the people and commit to implementing women’s reservation with a sub-quota for OBC women as soon as possible.”</p>
<p>He noted that the actions of the Modi administration are widening the gap between the affluent and the poor and said that the federal system and the principles it upholds are under threat as social tensions rise.</p>
<p>He urged bringing these issues to light and defending democracy and the Constitution.</p>
<p>After the resounding victories in Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka, Kharge claimed that cadre members are now more motivated than ever. He added that there is “a need to put in all our might to win” the five states where elections will be held.</p>
<p>The Election Commission announced Monday that Madhya Pradesh would hold single-phase assembly elections on November 17, Rajasthan on November 23, Telangana on November 30, and Mizoram on November 7. Chhattisgarh will have two-phase elections on November 7 (20 seats) and 17 (70 seats), according to the Election Commission.</p>
<p>This was the CWC’s second meeting since it was formed in August under the presidency of Kharge. The CWC is the highest decision-making body of the Congress. The first meeting was conducted in Hyderabad last month.</p>
